Story
Tagline
They were most efficient defenders of the Republic whose loyalty was almost martyrdom. History will do them justice, when it shall come to be fairly and fully written.
Introduction
They have been forgotten, those white Southerners who fought on the Union side.  They are the unknown soldiers of the Civil War.  In the vast and growing literature of that conflict they remain practically unmentioned.  There are historic reasons why this has been so, but it has not been because the men are historically unimportant or undeserving of remembrance.  Not at all.  They made a difference in the outcome of the war:  without them, it would not have ended when and as it did.  - Lincoln’s Loyalists
