Kentucky--History--Civil War, 1861-1865; United States--History--Civil War, 1861-1865
In the early days of 1861, Kentucky, torn between her allegiance to the federal government and her sympathy for the South, with her citizenry so divided that hardly a family in the state stood united, vainly endeavored to carve out for herself a niche of security in the midst of the chaos of war. Continuing her position as one of the United States, she yet attempted to assume a position of neutrality towards the two belligerents--the United States of which she was a part and the Confederacy.
