    Chickamauga website
    I believe that the battle of Chickamauga is one of the most confusing battles of the civil war. I found this website a while back and it has cleared up a lot of that confusion for me.

    One can hope, but reality has a way of getting in the way of hope. :smile:

    Order of Secession During the American Civil War

    State/% slave population/ Date of Secession

    South Carolina/ 57.2% / December 20, 1860
    Mississippi/ 55.2% / January 9, 1861
    Florida/ 44.0% / January 10, 1861
    Alabama/ 45.1% / January 11, 1861
    Georgia/ 43.7% / January 19, 1861
    Louisiana/ 46.9% / January 26, 1861
    Texas/ 30.2% / February 1, 1861

    AFTER SUMTER

    Virginia/ 30.7% / April 17, 1861
    Arkansas/ 25.5% /May 6, 1861
    North Carolina/ 33.4% / May 20, 1861
    Tennessee/ 24.8% / June 8, 1861

    DID NOT SECEDE

    Kentucky/ 19.5%
    Maryland/ 12.7%
    Missouri/ 9.7%
    Deleware/2%

    Of note is that there is almost a direct relationship between the percentage of slave population, and timing and occurrence (or non-occurrence) of secession. States less than 20% slave did not secede; states that were at least 44% slaves seceded before Sumter; and most of the states with 24%-35% slave population seceded after Sumter. Of note is that DE, KY and MD were considered southern states at the time; in fact, for purposes of the US Census, those three states are still considered part of the South.

    Perhaps the ties of Southern sisterhood were tied to their holdings of slaves?

    You're certainly welcome. I found the links in this thread extremely informative. It's a great idea to consolidate all the Civil War political info.
