My great grandfather had brothers on both sides. George Washington Burkett joined the Arkansas 8th at age 17 and bought through the war. Andrew Jackson Burkett had moved to Iowa before the war and joined the Union army and was disowned by the family. It was fairly easy to find out about George Washington Burkett but I can find no record (on the internet) of Andrew Jackson Burkett. Is this a fluke or is it really easier to track down Confederate ancestors than Union?
