An individual's reason for deserting is as varied as his reason for joining up in the first place. Although the lack of essentials on the field and at home most certainly played a part, I believe we make a mistake in attaching too much importance to it.

Lest we forget, the better-fed and -supplied Union armies had a problem with desertion, as well.
