I tried Missouri and Kentucky, I was wrong. As it turns out, they are 2 of 5 Union States (along with West Virginia, Maryland and Delaware) that permitted slavery during the war.

Historians call them "Border States" and they were considered key areas by the North to win the war. Lincoln said something like, "I'd like to hope God is with me but I must have Kentucky on my side."

The people up in those western counties of Virginia were extremely rural and poorer than the Virginians in the east. Due to the political power in Virginia was in the hands of a slave holding planter class, many of these country folk (I believe they were known as Yeoman) resented slavery as slavery made these country folks' possibility to profit impossible due to competition. Thus, West Virginia seceded from Virginia to join the Union in order to gain power for themselves, so that they would no longer be economically dependent on the slaver elite.

Frankfort, Kentucky, was the only state capital to be captured during the American Civil War. Also, both the presidents of the USA and the CSA (Lincoln and Davis) were born in Kentucky. Kentucky is a pretty important place, historically!

Careful with your wording now, Raleigh was the capital of North Carolina during the Civil War (still is) and was captured during the Civil War during Sherman's March after he captured Savannah in Georgia and Columbia (the capital of South Carolina at the time).

Yes, it's Vivien Leigh, who played Scarlet O'Hara in GWTW, one of the most iconic and epic Civil War films in American movie history. The number one movie line of all time, (according to AFI,) was spoken by the long-suffering Rhett Butler in reply to his spoiled wife Scarlet's desperate plea, "Rhett, if you go where shall I go? What shall I do?" Rhett's reply, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a d***!"

^ Yes! - "Gone With the Wind" and "Casablanca" best older films ever! - IMHO, the only contemporary films which come close are "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid", and "The Sting".
