About this title

Synopsis:

First book to cover all aspects of sexuality during the Civil War. Based on area original sources, including the soldiers' jokes, songs, letters, and diaries.

From the Author:

About thirty years ago I was reading Bill Wiley's immortal classic, The Life of Johnny Reb. On page 51 he asserted that a sexual history of the Civil War could never be written because of Victorian destruction of salacious material. I'm a contrarian. I began assembling material in a cardboard box. When the box weighed twenty-five pounds, I began to write. I liked the result. Thirty-five publishers did not. With guidance from William C. "Jack" Davis, Robert K. Krick, and Michael P. Musick the book emerged, vastly improved, and has since sold 32,000 copies.  The facts, presented in a non-prurient way, seem to have amused many Civil War buffs. Later books, with even more facts and figures, had a lesser impact -- the taboo of mixing sex and the Civil War had already been lifted.
