Sample text

And among prominent veterans, the most notable characteristic of war memoirs in the 1870s was their absence. Especially when compared with the experience of Page 21 ex-Confederates or with the bitter disillusionment and massive social upheavals that followed later demobilizations (notably after World War I), the return of Union veterans to civil life was smooth. 6 One reason for the relatively easy transition seems obvious: The dislocations of the war were largely glossed over by the exalted place that the event occupied in Northern postwar culture.

A second defect in the Grand Review's picture of national order, despite its awesome size and scope, was its exclusiveness. For one thing, it obviously included no partisans of the Confederate cause, who needed somehow to be returned to the national body politic. A Union victory parade was hardly the place for such reintegration. 20 The problem of sectional reintegration would continue to vex the Northerners. Among the Union veterans, in years to come, it would arise over such issues as Confederate monuments, Blue-Gray reunions, and the content of United States history textbooks.

For thirty years after the Washington event, every major soldiers' reunion, or "encampment," made some attempt to recreate the pageantry of that day, and it was a rare reunion parade that did not elicit from some observer an explicit comparison with the Washington review of 1865. " A similar procession at Washington in 1892 provoked Vice President Levi P. 36 In short, the Grand Review offered a startling and unprecedented vision of national unity, albeit a less than perfect one. In each regiment, in each town, in the life of each soldier, the standardization and homogenization of the Union Army experience collided with stubborn and important centrifugal tendencies in American society.
