Here, Confederates from Missouri fought Union soldiers
from Missouri. At Vicksburg—and across every Civil War
battlefield—men who had once been friends faced off as
enemies. Neighbors and even family members found
themselves on opposite sides, fighting for different ideals.
Did they hesitate to fire on each other?

In the officers' ranks were many men who had attended
the same military academies. When Grant and
Pemberton met to discuss surrender terms, they spoke as
enemy commanders, but also as West Point graduates.
The Civil War was not a struggle to fend off a foreign
nation, but a war of Americans fighting Americans.

. . .officers and men arrayed in opposed lines from 1861 to 1865
were American citizen soldiers, Union and Confederate alike. . .
