THIS IS OF THE GENERALS IN THE NORTH AND SOUTH. 1. 11 STATES SECEDED FROM THE UNITED STATES. 2. GETTYSBURG WAS THE BLOODIEST BATTLE. 3. MORE THAN 400,000 SOLDIERS WERE CAPTURED IN THE DURATION OF THE WAR. 4. THE AVERAGE AGE OF THE SOLDIERS WAS 25.8 YEARS. (civilwar.org) Anna Leigh Hayes 3/17/14

US Civil War Infographic poster. Yet another mistake regarding Missouri. We were 'technically' in the Union but simultaneously had an Confederate government and supported the Confederacy. Most people in SW Missouri were CSA sympathizers. Missouri fielded regiments for both sides of the war, not just Union, not to mention the Bushwhackers, which were another entity entirely.
