It isn't really mine either so don't take what I say as Gospel. I'm just sorta thinking out loud. I'm doing some research in 19th Century US history for my timeline (cheap plug here!) but I still have a ways to go to match some of the knowledge other posters have on this topic. If anyone has other ideas feel free to jump in.Yeah I was pretty sure that was the case but I thought I'd ask anyways. The American Civil War isn't really my area of expertise.
