In various research I've done I've come across service cards for teamsters. They seem, to me, to exist somewhere in an in-between state - not soldiers and yet not civilians. I'd love to get some clarification on these men. For instance:
- Were they enlisted men?
- What role did they play?
- Did they qualify for pensions?
- Were there differences between the CSA and Union teamsters?
