The blog Muster has an interesting article by Susannah Ural titled TEACHING THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR THROUGH THE EXPERIENCES OF CIVIL WAR VETERANS. It can be found here:

Ural discusses how she uses Veteran Studies to teach:

Studying the experiences of Civil War veterans and their families helps students understand the complex forces that shaped late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century America. Their life stories help instructors explain soldiers’ motivations for service, discuss battles and campaigns, describe conscription and dissent, unravel the process of emancipation, and examine the political and economic upheaval of the era. By studying a veteran from a single company or regiment — and the communities in which they were raised — students discover how historical figures experienced the larger historical trends we study in class.
