This chapter shows how Unionists came in many varieties, but all were at least disloyal to the Confederacy, with some working actively against the state and the Confederacy. The effect of the Unionists’ activities on the morale of the loyal citizens was significant, with the illegal trading of cotton with the Federals the major source of discouragement for loyal Confederates.

Keywords:   Unionists, Confederacy, moral, loyal citizens, illegal trading, cotton
