Civil War Games
Civil War Chess
Civil War games were common on both sides during the war. Games did a lot to keep the troops entertained and ease the constant boredom of camp life.
Holidays in camp were cause for large celebrations. There were foot races, feasts, horse races, music shows, and all types of different contests that were put on by the troops.
Basically soldiers on both sides did anything they could to stop the boredom they often had to endure living in camp.
Now of course all of these activities could never take place when an army was on an active campaign, during a campaign leisure time was relegated to basically writing letters, sleeping and keeping your equipment in working order.
