Why were David’s troops ashamed after their victory over Absalom’s rebellion?

ANSWER

David was crying over the death of his son.

2nd Samuel 19 :

(2) And for the whole army the victory that day was turned into mourning, because on that day the troops heard it said, “The king is grieving for his son.” (3) The men stole into the city that day as men steal in who are ashamed when they flee from battle. (4) The king covered his face and cried aloud, “O my son Absalom! O Absalom, my son, my son!”
