I have joined South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina, and Tennessee in the Confederate Army. There are around 750,000 to 1.2 Million Soldiers fighting for the Confederacy but we are outnumbered by the Union because they have around 2.6 Million Soldiers fighting for their side. 69% of us are farmers and the Union are mostly factory workers.
