The Red Badge of Courage Chapter 13 Summary

  • Henry reels toward the fire and tents of his own regiment and is greeted warmly, especially when he tells everyone that he was SHOT IN THE HEAD.
  • Wilson ("the Loud Soldier") looks after Henry quite tenderly. He comments that Henry’s injury looks somewhat odd for a bullet wound.
  • Well, yes…
  • Henry sleeps the sleep of the guilty and the lying (in other words, just as well as anyone else).
