The Little Regiment is a collection of short stories that includes "Three Miraculous Soldiers, " "A Mystery of Heroism, " "An Indiana Campaign, " "A Gray Sleeve, " and "The Veteran" in addition to the titular A Little Regiment. Like his acclaimed The Red Badge of Courage (1895), these stories center around the American Civil War and accurately evoke the feel of a battlefield, despite the fact that Crane himself never experienced combat.Subject: 19th Century, American Literature, Fiction.
