And though in the end there are only two comrades of four you can't help thinking that this friendship will live forever. There are characters who have lived through the war, but it hadn't broken their spirit, they want to live even more, want to have the time of their life. According to McPherson, while soldiers certainly fought to protect themselves and those that fought alongside them, they also fought to a surprising degree in support of patriotic and ideological principles. Other meanings of this word are: mate, pal, friend, companion, even partner or associate etc.

And there were also other people who weren't formally "comrades" but they could be called so because all they helped each other in this or that way. For years James McPherson was plagued by the question of what motivated soldiers to fight and die during the Civil War. His sample is remarkably representative of Civil War soldier demographics as whole, he submits, comparing proportions of men from different states, occupations, and serving in different military branches. Malone put in a burst for the line, but with only 15 metres left he fell to the ground with cramps.

In non-political sense, it means "companion". And they gave to their country its epic poem while introducing the American people to the American West. For Cause and Comrades is a quest by historian James McPherson to understand why the Civil War soldiers fought the Civil War and why they fought as intensely and for as long as they did. Northern soldiers, for the most part, did not believe that they fought for abolition.
