Large numbers of CS soldiers had no choice in if they were willing to fight or not. Huge numbers voted w/ their feet equalling the largest desertion rate of any standing army in the history of North America. Even the best units would face desertion rates of 60%.

The men on the sharp end knew what they were fighting for and it was not a better world for them and their families.

Why did so many stay and fight? The answer is obvious to anyone who has ever served; they were no longer fighting for their country but the men beside them. They didn't continue on for substandard food, shoddy clothing and intermittent (if any) useless CS money, they didn't fight for any ideal of a free & independent state or CS they were fighting for their friends & comrades beside them; screw the politicians & stay behinders.
