Out of curiosity, how many Southerners fought for the Union during the war? Did Southern West Point cadets still recieve commissions and did any Southerners specifically leave the South to fight for the Union?
Also, were they met with contempt by their fellow Union soldiers, or were they exhalted for having stayed loyal? Although I've heard no stories, I can imagine they were ostercised by other Southerners when the Union marched through their home towns.
The last question; did Southern officers have command over Northern units?Or were Southern Loyalists put into their own units?Best regards!
