Missouri and Kentucky are the best examples. Overall the support for the Confederacy was more sprawling than any map shows (Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, and Chicasaw Nation fought for the Confederacy, as well as Confederate Arizona), but the flip side is it was also opposed by many within the Confederate boundaries, too.

Why more Americans don't know this is mind blowing, and one of the greatest failures in American English education. I've taught English overseas for decades, and was amazed when I came back to America how few people were even aware of the characters. Very sad.
