The Civil War was the costliest war in American history. Some 600,000 people died. As a percentage of population this would be equivalent to five million deaths in present day America. Despite the horrors of war, or maybe because of them, humor still had a place in American life. Abraham Lincoln best summed up the role of humor in the war when he said, "With the fearful strain that is on me night and day, if I did not laugh I should die."

A brief but fascinating look at humor in the Civil War including: (1) Stories Around the Campfire, (2) Parody, (3) the Irish, (4) Humorous Incidents, (5) Civil War Humorists, and (6) Lincoln.
