  • Keep in mind that once the Union took control of an area they immediately started raising troops. Many men from Kentucky and Missouri found themselves conscripted to fight with the Yankees. A number of men also volunteered in the first year to fight for the Confederacy, went home and then enlisted or were drafted into the Union Army.

    In Louisiana, if any such deserters/turncoats were captured they would be shot or hung. A number of New Orleans residents found themselves in this predicament. General Butler even opened up the state penitentiary in Baton Rouge and enrolled the inmates in his New England Regiments.

    • I agree with guthrieba and Pruitt. The CSA and USA both claimed Kentucky and Missouri. The Confederates contested posession of Kentucky as late as October, 1862, when the Battle of Perryville was fought.
