In 1861, 18-year-old Angelo Crapsey enlisted in the Union Army. His commanding officer called him the “ideal of a youthful patriot.” In letters sent over the course of two years, Angelo's attitude toward the Civil War darkened after he experienced combat and witnessed the deaths of countless soldiers. By 1863, Angelo was hospitalized, feverish and delirious; eventually he was sent home to Roulette, Pennsylvania. Becoming paranoid and violent, he killed himself in 1864 at age 21.
