The Florida units fighting the Confederate cause in the West made no major contribution to the overall war effort, yet many Florida officers and men did yeomen service in the South’s Army of Tennessee. The experiences of these soldiers certainly reflect those of many other Confederate fighting men in the same army. In this sense, the trials and tribulations of these Floridians may be used to illustrate the changing conditions among at least one segment of the southern troops on a very important front of the Civil War.
