|I think that's what's really nice about this section of the forums, we can be reminded that "it is all hell." Without any veterans around to tell us of their experinces in the war, we're probably a lot more likely to romanticize the war. But being able to look at the letters and writings of the men, and women, during the war lets us see what life actually was like. And then there are the little things like this or the accounts of those poor souls being burned alive at the Wilderness that really help to force us to imagine what the war must really have been like.
