"Will I Ever be Fit for Civil Society Again?" The Challenges of Readjustment Through the Prism of the New Jersey Soldier's Home at Newark
AbstractAbstract: The New Jersey Soldier's Home was founded to assist Civil War veterans who returned home scarred by the conflict's frightful scenes of carnage. The Home's records, indeed, its very existence, show that the transition from military to civilian life was no easier 150 years ago than it is today.
