Read The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane. Realistic external battle scenes are almost dwarfed by the inner experience of young Henry Fleming, private in the Union Army. After fleeing the battlefield, overcome with shame, Henry longs for a wound, a "red badge of courage," to counteract his cowardice. His regiment once again faces the enemy.
