Arguing that the supporters of the Confederacy from East Tennessee (an area known for intense pro-Union sentiment) were a unique phenomenon in Civil War history, Groce (executive director of the Georgia Historical Society) traces the socio-economic and political ties that caused officers to join the Confederacy. He describes the rebels' unenviable position between a guarded hostility from Richmond and local Unionist hatred which viewed the rebels as oppressors a hatred that would drive many of them far from home at the conclusion of the war.
