1. The Polish Brigade
Despite the name, the Polish Brigade was not exclusively Polish. Exiles from Europe, feeling from the political and revolutionary strife of the mid-century, joined this organization. Although the organization served during the major campaigns of the Civil War in Virginia, the exiles were never quite fully embraced by the military and political leaders of the Confederacy.
