Click here for a sample section of the guide!

Henry Fleming, a green recruit, has joined the Union army to satisfy his longing for glory and heroism. Henry's mind draws pictures "lurid with breathless deeds" on the battlefield. He imagines himself "a blue determined figure standing before a crimson and steel assault, getting calmly killed on a high place before the eyes of all." Camp life, he soon discovers, is far less exciting than the army of his imagination. During long periods of enforced idleness, Henry is plagued by adolescent doubts: Will he distinguish himself in battle? Will he run? He longs for the fighting to begin so that he might be tested, might "watch his legs" in the midst of battle to see whether they stand firm or flee. The harsh reality of the Civil War leaves him struggling against fear and self-doubt to find courage in the midst of chaos.

    I love all the guides

    I love all the guides that I have used and this one is no exception. I love the "Dig Deeper" sections that make my child think about how the story relates to lessons to taught in scripture.

    The Red Badge of Courage

    Posted by Becky L. on 27th Apr 2015

    I purchased the ebook for my 8th grade daughter as part of a supplement since we are studying the Civl War and of course because it is a classic. I thoroughly enjoyed the depth of questions Progeny Press included as well as the vocabulary. The "Dig Deeper" questions were a good mix of Biblical Insights and introspective thoughts for students to explore and delve into. We had many good discussions with this book. Great guide, Progeny Press. Keep up the good work.
