From the back:
Although the exact battle is never identified, Crane based this story of a soldier's experiences during the American Civil War on the 1863 Battle of Chancellorsville. Many veterans, both Union and Confederate, praised the book's accurate representation of war, and critics consider its stylistic strength the mark of a literary classic.

I always have thought that the time period was Civil War, but never a specific battle. I love this story for it’s depiction of wartime and what people thought during the time.
