The Red Badge of Courage (Chapter 4)

The brigade was halted in the fringe of a grove.

Here we can see the youth watching his first battle. It says they gossiped about the soldiers and the armies. Gossip is horrible. You gossip about somebody, and you don’t only hurt their reputation, but you ruined your own reputation as well. Everybody will know that you are a gossip, and nobody will want to tell you anything personal, because they will be afraid of your blabbermouth.
