I had ancestors fighting in that Civil War as well. The Scots-Irish were born fighting as Senator Webb wrote.Maybe, maybe not, the US Constitution doesn't really say if a state has to stay in the Union. Lee believed in not raising a hand against his home of Virginia, that doesn't seem to traitorous to me.
My ancestors were called traitors when raised arms against the Crown, but here we are living in a country they created after they rebelled.
