West Virginia is the only state born out of the Civil War and it's allegiances were seriously divided by the conflict. Many residents served the Confederate cause, a majority of them joining the Federal Forces mobilized by Gov. John Letcher. Many saw their duty as the defence of their homes and soil from a Northern invasion.
