During the Civil War, dogs served as troop mascots, demonstrating bravery and loyalty in camp and on the battlefield. These mascots were an inspiration, bringing about unity while representing beloved pets at home. For soldiers, the act of nurturing offset boredom in camp, and the dogs would enjoy a charmed life lavished with affection. In Weiss’ powerful image, this mascot provides much needed sanctuary to a young soldier who has undoubtedly witnessed the many horrors of war.
