Life During the Civil War #1

Storyboard Text

  • African American
  • Yes, lets go.
  • Its time to start digging the trenches.
  • Hello, my name is Danny, and this is Nick coming with an assignment to do.
  • What, really?
  • Camp Life
  • The boys will be playing in the band in a hour.
  • Cool. Can't wait to hear the music.
  • Food
  • If you want food. You are going to have to go get it yourself. Tonight there is hardtack.
  • Ok, thanks for letting me now. I will go get some.
  • African American soldiers could not read or write. 179,000 black men served as soldiers in the army while another 19,000 black men served in the navy. These African American troops were paid less than black troops. Even though they were assigned the dirty jobs.
  • Battles
  • To pass the time soldiers would listen to a band play.
  • Medicine
  • You are going to be fine Danny. You just have a bad disease. You should be back in no time.
  • Soldiers ate hardtack. They had to prepare their own foods and had many meals ready to eat.
  • Prisoner of War Camps
  • Soldiers had to deal with hunger, bad weather, poor clothing, and boredom between battles. Many soldiers suffered homesickness during battle and got PTSD from the war.
  • No nurses or doctors had proper training. American physicians thought recording the events, weather conditions, air temperature or quality affects the causes of disease. Many soldiers got infections and had to get amputation.
  • This won't stop me exploring and spying on the emeny. 
  • Later that day Danny got caught by the Confederates with another soldier named Jack.
  • There was harsh living conditions. In the prisons there was severely cramped living quarters, outbreaks of disease, and saddistoc treatment from guards and commandants.
  • Jack, I won't say a peep.
  • They are goimg to have us start talking. Danny don't say anything about who is leading our division and our armys plan of action. Don't say a word.
