Does anyone know whether there were considerable numbers of Union sympathizers in the foothills of southern VA? My husband's great-grandfather was b. c. 1854 in Henry Co VA and later named a son Benjamin Harrison Edwards. Obviously, I'm wondering if the family may have included some Unionists (I have found one Confederate soldier, so far).
