Although loudmouthed braggart Jerry Plunkett alienates his comrades and officers, Father Duffy, the regimental chaplain, has faith that he'll prove himself in the end.
In training camp, there is a reference to the 69th as "Coxey's Army". Coxey's Army was the name given to a protest march on Washington in 1894 by unemployed workers, led by businessman Jacob Coxey.
Aw, the *saps*!
Father Duffy: Help me break it up, Jerry!
Jerry Plunkett: Not *me* pal; You don't get medals for *that* kinda fightin'!
After the fight in camp, one of the 69th soldiers refereed to the Alabama boys as "Razorbacks". Razorbacks are from Arkansas, but a young man from New York could have mixed that up.
