The soldier’s life . . . drill and drill . . .

“The first thing in the morning is drill, then drill, then drill again. Then drill, drill, a little more drill. Then drill, and lastly drill. Between drills, we drill and sometimes stop to eat a little and have roll call.”

– A Northern soldier
Cited in Soldiers Blue and Gray, Robertson: p. 48.
