1) In Chapter Two, Henry is stressed because he's not sure whether or not he will run from battle.

2) The regiment has to march for days, and they are forced to leave much needed supplies behind because they become too heavy to carry.

3) Once at the battle site, the men are repositioned over and over again. They become frustrated.

4) Henry's regiment, ready for battle, witnesses the defeat of the regiment before them. They see the officers attempting to beat the fleeing men back into the direction from which they've come.
