In the North Georgia mountains, when they held the land lottery, War of 1812 veterans were eligible. Two of my 3rd g-grandfathers moved from NC as part of the settlement. The one who was still alive when the Civil War started supported the Union. The other was grandfather to my g-grandfather, who was Unionist and said that we "had fought too hard to become one country" to break up into "fiefdoms" - he was quite sure that the Confederacy would keep breaking up even if it survived the war. Until recently, I had not known much about the War of 1812 - but that was the time that New England almost seceded.
