Would like to start a thread about the politics of keeping Kentucky loyal to the Union for background to my next novel. Especially interested in the outfitting of the militia companies prior to the occupation of Columbus. Let's start with the information available in Shelby Foote's history.

Did S.B. Buckner, in his role as commander of the Kentucky militia, actually oversee arming pro-secession companies before arming pro-Union ones?

Where there ever combat actions among the different militia companies?

Which counties favored secession and which were pro-Union?

Historical references?
