In 2008, Drew Gilpin Faust’s This Republic of Suffering opened the way for what some scholars have since termed a “dark turn” in Civil War scholarship. Historian Brian Matthew Jordan has argued this darker, more complex approach properly considers the war “not as an event, but as a human experience”—and, despite the remove of more than a century and a half, an experience that can once again make us viscerally uncomfortable. The latest contribution to this body of dark scholarship comes from Brian Steel Wills, Inglorious Passages: Noncombat Deaths in the American Civil War (University Press of Kansas, 2017).
