Could you perhaps clarify? States had many and varied struggles, some that only affected their own state, some issues affected various regions, some struggles affected the entire nation. I’m not sure what the question is asking.

This seems to me more of an Economics issue. I am sure all of the states involved in the war had some type of struggle most had since before and after the revolutionary war. I mean for instance during the war you had two governors down in North Carolina and Georgia who didn't support the Davis Administration policies. I know down in Georgia it was told Joe Brown had his pet troops men he kept out of the main Confederate army I can see this as a struggle. In Tennessee the state was torn by unionist living in Eastern Tennessee most led by the Parson William G. Brownlow and then the Confederates led by Governor Isham Harris. You had Northern States like New York where some leaders supported the Confederacy while some didn't.
