Areas of western Virginia[edit]

Regarding this edit, areas of western Virginia did not rejoin the union. There were two state governments, a Unionist one and a Confederate one, both claiming to be the legitimate state government of Virgina. The Unionist government didn't recognize the Confederate government's secession of Virgina, and the Confederate government didn't recognize the Unionist government's creation of West Virgina.

It is true that some areas were under (and came under) union control, and some were under (and came under) Confederate control, but that's just armies moving around. That is not the same thing as areas joining the Union or the Confederacy.

Unless you count the creation of West Virgina, areas of Virginia never joined the union; it was simply disputed weather Virgina was a Union or Confederate state. Emmette Hernandez Coleman (talk) 03:59, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
