TypicalYou made it the issue. Did you even consider that the Tennessee archivists knew that the USCT records and pensions were secure in the National Archives and that unless they acted the Confederate records of that state would have been lost? It’s just silly to blame the obscurity of the USCT to an individual state’s historians, but that’s what you seem to be doing. It’s almost as bad as blaming Early for creating a Civil War narrative the winners unwittingly embraced for well more than a century. But it all serves to make a lot of people feel better about themselves, and that’s the point of it all, isn’t it?
