Union Blue and Militia Gray:
The Role of the New York State Militia
in the Civil War
-
Preface

Even today the "War between the States" is the term used for the American Civil War throughout much of the South. While it was a war fought between two national governments, many men on both sides felt that they were serving their states as much, if not more, than their central governments. Many of the states agreed, since the state governments raised their own units, commissioned their officers and supplied the enlisted men. [1]
