Historical Information
Fraternization was ever-present in the Civil War. This was not remarkable. Johnny Rebs and Billy Yanks spoke the same language, had the same backgrounds and cultures, possessed the same likes and dislikes. While it was easy to hate the enemy in abstract, sometimes individual feelings overcame sectional animosity. A regular reason for fraternization was the Union soldiers’ wish for tobacco and the Confederates’ desire for coffee. This swapping of hard-to-get items is shown here as two enemy soldiers meet in the Rappahannock River. They had declared a truce by long-distance shouting. Now they stand in no-man’s land and silently enjoy luxuries for a few moments.
