Sex in the Civil WareBook - 1994
Drawing on a wide variety of primary sources--from letters that escaped the censoriousness of their writers' descendants to court-martial reports, prostitutes' diaries, and the modest remaining examples of very immodest Victorian erotica--Lowry argues that, in spite of Victorian mores, a thoroughly normal amount of sexual activity went on under the covers and in other places during the war." --"Booklist"
Explores the secret life of the men in blue and gray--from pornography, bawdy songs, and prostitution to stories of love and marriage
