They certainly had nicer uniforms :) Too bad they didn't have better generals.


Actually, they DID have better generals. Most of the Union generals kept getting their asses kicked until Grant came along, and even he was reticent to actually go out and attack anybody.

Lincoln wrote a letter to Grant at one point asking "If you aren't going to use the army, may I borrow it?"

Anyways, I agree with Fighting Falcon.

Though New Mexico wasn't even a state back then, we were a free territory, so I suppose we're Yankees too!

We just have to put up with the Texans. ;)
