Most Iowans think that the state was solidly pro-Union during the Civil War. After all, some 76,500 residents fought for the North. In reality, Iowa Democrats formed a spectrum of dissent.

Out of this group, at least 60 Iowa residents served the Confederacy. This talk will focus on four or five of them.
