"Had I so inherited in behalf of the rich, the powerful, the intelligent, the so-called great, or in behalf of any of their friends . . . every man in this court would have deemed it a act worthy of reward rather than punishment."
                                            ~ Last speech of abolitionist John Brown
                                                    During his trial on November 2, 1859

Confederates picked up approximately eleven thousand small arms when they gleaned the field after the Battle of Fredericksburg.

Belle Boyd was a young Virginia teenager and known as the "Cleopatra of the Secession."  She used her feminine wiles to coax military information from Union officers at her father's Front Royal Hotel.  She would then ride boldly  through enemy lines at night to deliver the information to General Stonewall Jackson and other Confederate Commanders.  For her contributions, she was awarded the Southern Cross of Honor.

Approximately twenty thousand Native Americans served in the Union and Confederate armies during the Civil War.  They participated in battles such as Pea Ridge, Second Manassas, Antietam, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, and Federal assaults on Petersburg.
