A Discussion of Rationale for Confederate Desertion

This exhibit examines the political, social, and personal factors that contributed to desertion of Confederate soldiers in North Carolina. The central focus is on the mountain region (Western North Carolina), and uses letters, diaries, statistics, and other personal accounts to argue how each of the factors listed above contribute to inevitable desertion, and the justification these soldiers had in doing so.
