This collection of “foul facts” highlights the often-horrifying realities of daily life during the Civil War. While some are amusing, such as the combined urine amounts of one million military horses, more entries reveal the pervasive hardships of the battlefields, hospitals, and prisons. Illustrations and period photos provide sobering visual support.
