about

Lowry, a physician and medical historian, weaves a fascinating history of a little-discussed aspect (sex) of a much-discussed subject (the Civil War). --Library JournalDrawing on a wide variety of primary sources--from letters that escaped the censoriousness of their writers' descendants to court-martial reports, prostitutes' diaries, and the modest remaining examples of very immodest Victorian erotica--Lowry argues that, in spite of Victorian mores, a thoroughly normal amount of sexual activity went on under the covers and in other places during the war." --BooklistExplores the secret life of the men in blue and gray--from pornography, bawdy songs, and prostitution to stories of love and marriage
Thomas P. Lowry, M.D. retired from medicine--he was a was a physician and psychiatrist for forty years--to write historical human interest stories like this one.
