I'm not  familiar with anything like a serious study of PTSD in the  post-CW
period.  If anybody knows of one, I, for one would be  interested.
Anything I have seen is just bits and pieces in various books on wider  
topics.  But I am certain there is a gold mine of information in material  from 
post-war veterans organizations.  I am somewhat familiar with what was  
published by the organization for Veterans of the Fourteenth Connecticut  
Infantry, and tucked away in their "newsletters" and obituary notices are  
glimpses of various men whose lives never really came back together after the  
war, unable to hold responsible jobs, restless, wandering.
