Re: Militia vs. Confederate Service
We cannot judge one of them much less all. There's no way we can understand the true nature of the beast that was in a feeding frenzy from 1861 to 1865. We can't walk a mile in their shoes because many had no shoes. I would think that there were quite a few men who may not show up as 'enlisted' or in a recognized unit but they faced the enemy none the less. It was kill or be killed even away from the battlefields.
