Recruited from a small corner of rural Georgia, the men of the 57th Georgia Infantry fought and died together while battling their Union foes across much of the South. Yet like all other units that participate in war, the men of the 57th were not merely hardened soldiers; they too had hopes, anxieties, and fears that bound them together. From one private's secret desire to desert his mates to another's theft of a pie, the story of these men describes both the physical and personal battles that faced all who fought in the Civil War.
