Joannie Reb, thank you for that quote. That is what I consider to be a perfect example of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. Of course, it wasn't recognized in those days and was probably a matter of great shame. Heck, it often isn't recognized now!

It was most likely considered unmanly and cowardly. I wonder how many "cowards" and deserters who fled in fear, but were then executed were actually men who suufered from PTSS.
