Sometimes being neutral just means you get raided by both sides. A lot of that went on in Kansas, I doubt anyone was allowed to be neutral.It would depend on some extent the dissidents, if they took up arms, obviously that's going to draw unfavorable treatment.
My state was probably as divided, and as bitterly as any. But think if a community actually remained neutral, it was largely left alone. Bethel and Hermann come to mind.
