Writers such as Dee Brown (BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE) George Levy (TO DIE IN CHICAGO), and Dr. Ella Lonn (she dismissed the idea that southerners could serve in the US Army as they were to stupid and poorly educated to be of any value) recognized that many were given the oppertunity to fight Indians. However; Tennessee provided more than 50 of the 111 regiments raised for the US Army among southern refugees and POW's. My Hale ancestors fled to Cumberland Gap and enlisted into the 1st Tenn Vol Cav along with many men that would become their brothers-in-law after the war. My Dean ancestors were CS conscripts.
