The exhibit will be on display through June 5, 2022. This exhibit will share how the life of a soldier in camp was one of endless hours of military routine, roll call, drilling, walking a post or picket duty, work details, and eating the same predictable food day in and day out. The excitement of battle for most soldiers came only after months of sitting in camp, fighting off intense boredom, especially during the winter months. To stave off boredom and homesickness soldiers occupied their off time with various activities. Most would write letters home, talking about how much they wished that they could be there, discuss family finances, or share anecdotes of life in camp. Games were another way of passing the hours, and soldiers would come up with many creative ways to compete against each other.. Entrance to the exhibit is included in the cost of regular museum admission.
