Chioma Bennett US Civil War Professor Elizabeth Varon April 8, 2010. Extra Credit There are various passages within  All for the Union: The Civil War Diary and  Letters of Elisha Hunt Rhodes , edited by Robert Hunt Rhodes, that reflect themes of  heroism, nationalism, and courage.  However, motivating factors from the US Civil War  such as comradeship and incentive, in which comradeship helped the most, spurred the  soldiers to continue their fight in the war. In his diary entry from July 21 st  1861, Rhodes depicted the troubles that he had as  a young foot soldier.  One anecdote of his suffering was, “I suffered untold horrors from  thirst and fatigue but struggled on, clinging to my gun and cartridge box. Many times I  sat down in the mud determined to go no further, and willing to die to end my misery.
