Liberty and Independence
At the onset of the Civil War, Delaware remained in the Union. While most residents who fought in the war served in the regiments of the state, some served in companies on the Confederate side in Maryland and Virginia regiments. Delaware is notable for being the only southern state from which no Confederate regiments or militia groups were assembled.
