E. Housman: This poem shows how pressured into being ‘a man’ and fighting for their country was forced into the minds of many youth which had them signing up for the mass slaughtering that was the first world war, it tells of how they were too young, too naive to know better. It seems almost as though this song is something mourning the loss of not only many many lives, but the loss of youth.

Imagine seeing a friend get shot but not being able to do anything to help because if one would help they’d be the next to go. This is what was happening in the American Civil War from 1861-1865. Many soldiers came back and very different, some in good ways but many in bad ways. During the Civil War, soldiers experienced horrific and terrifying things often causing severe psychological trauma; as a result of this trauma, men often suffered mistreatment and went wrongly diagnosed until Jacob DaCosta discovered and researched what we now call Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Every single soldier in the war came close to death, whether watching a fellow fighter die, almost dying themselves, or killing an innocent victim.
