I was just awondering if you was up there defending the Dear South from them Ugly Yankees.
I am doin what can be done. Though I would note that in several counties of southern Indiana and Illinois, there were towns where formations of young men left their communities heading south as a unit to avoid Yankee conscription and jine up with their Southron cousins.
There was also at least one wreck of a Yankee troop train near Washington, IN, near Tunnelton. Whether poor maintenance and increased wartime rail traffic caused a genuine accident or the event was the result of actions by Dixie agents, Copperhead sympathizers or both is not certain, though still suspected.
