The Red Badge of Courage
by Stephen Crane
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).
