Hi Larry,

Cpl James Pollock reflect soldiers from Maryland a border state that had units on both sides, it appears James donned the Gray with the Virginia Cavalry, quit a back & forth career he must have had!? It had to be particularly difficult when CSA Maryland troops went against US Maryland units!?

Anything on this?
thanks for posting,
Dave
