Galvanized Virginians in the Indian Wars
A young Confederate soldier from sunny Virginia found himself shivering in a Dakota blizzard, while scurvy rotted his teeth. What was he doing there and why? The answer lies in the 300 Virginia soldiers who “galvanized” into the Union army. These were men from Union prisoner of war camps who enlisted in the United State Volunteers and were sent west to fight Indians.
