A Winter of Change

(p.80) Chapter VII A Winter of Change
From Selma to Appomattox

Lawrence R. Laboda

Oxford University Press

This chapter talks about the army of Gen. Burnside, which only engaged in little more than cavalry reconnaissance; and the Jeff Davis Artillery, which was also finding an overabundance of time to be a problem. They had only long days of winter to look forward to. Reorganizations and promotions in both armies were made. Furthermore, a steady rain struck, and before long the ponderous Federal machine was literally stuck in the mud. Bondurant, Bates, and their company were subjected to a full month of the tedium and fixed routine that went with life in winter quarters, and the seasons still had a long way to go.

Keywords:   armies, winter, Jeff Davis, overabundance, promotions, Federal machine, routine
