My grandfather refused to talk about his years at war. If anyone asked him a question he would simply say he didn't want to talk about it. I remember at Thanksgiving and Christmas grandma always made a ham especially for grandpa because he wouldn't eat turkey. He said it was given to the soldiers too often during the war to eat and he couldn't stand the taste anymore.
He was a Union Painter by trade. He was a very accomplished artist.
