They have been forgotten, those white Southerners who fought on the Union side. They are the unknown soldiers of the Civil War. In the vast and growing literature of that conflict they remain practically unmentioned. There are historic reasons why this has been so, but it has not been because the men are historically unimportant or undeserving of remembrance. Not at all. They made a difference in the outcome of the war: without them, it would not have ended when and as it did. - Lincoln’s Loyalists
They accused me of being a Buffalo, that is what all loyal men were called, and harboring Buffaloes in the woods. They did arrest me and imprisioned me and made other threats which I do not remember. - John H. Haddock
