From the TALK series, The Civil War
Discussion led by Al Ortolani.

For Henry Fleming, the protagonist of Crane's classic Civil War novel, the fundamental contrast between his anticipation of war and his experience of battle frames the hero's growing consciousness of the realities of war. That new consciousness brings into question the hero's initial idealized quest for a "red badge of courage," the wound that proves his manhood.
