The list is for the most part fine but there are some things that are incorrect/should be added.

West Virginia should be added as a Union state.
Although not a state D.C. raised a couple full sized regiments for the Union.

For States with CSA Units Delaware should be removed with Kentucky and Missouri added instead.
Even though Delaware was a border state with some CSA sympathizers it was not able to raise any significant force to fight for it. The few  Delaware men who fought for the CSA fought in Maryland and Virginia units.

Shit, you're right. How'd I forget about Missouri's CSA forces. I do know however that Delaware had a few CSA regiments, I think 1 or 2. Also if I remember right the DC forces were part of the regular army, so that's why I didn't put the District on there.

I'll update it now.

I'm proud of my state (ohio) they sent many men to fight for the Union.

I do know however that Delaware had a few CSA regiments, I think 1 or 2.

Its a common misconception that Delware raised Confederate units as it is a border state, however there were absolutely no sizable Delaware units in the Confederate armed forces, not even a company which was roughly 100 men. The mentality of nearly all citizens of Delaware was that Delaware was the first state to ratify a union and would be the last to leave it, despite being a border state with slavery. All Delaware confederates that served in CSA units did not fight under the banner of Delaware.


Also if I remember right the DC forces were part of the regular army, so that's why I didn't put the District on there.

The D.C. regiments I mentioned acted like any other state raised regiment in the Union Army and were not part of the regular army. While regular army units are organized in D.C. they are composed of men from any state, unlike the D.C. volunteer units which are virtually all men from D.C. and organized the same as state volunteer regiments.

Hm. Give me a bit to do some research. It's not that I don't trust you, I just need more than one person telling me something for me to believe it.

Well, I stand corrected. I tip my hat to you Aiello, I fell for the common mistake.

Ah, sorry about that. Biege is supposed to be light brown not almost white. I'm trying to find the color most closely used by most CSA regiments, best I can find is olive for now.

Make that tan.
