For example, in his Reminiscences, Union general and statesman Carl Schurz reflected on his encounter with droves of poor white Southern deserters during the Chattanooga campaign: “They had but a very dim conception, if any conception at all, of what all this fighting and bloodshed was about. They had been induced, or had been forced, to join the army by those whom they had been accustomed to look upon as their superiors. They had only an indistinct feeling that on the part of the South the war had not been undertaken and was not carried on for their benefit. There was a ‘winged word’ current among the poor people of the South, which strikingly portrayed the situation, as they conceived it to be, in a single sentence: ‘It is the rich man’s war and the poor man’s fight.’ This was so true that the poor whites of the South could hardly be expected to be sentimentally loyal to the ‘Southern cause.’” Carl Schurz, The Reminiscences of Carl Schurz, 3:70–71. 9.
