Queer Civil War buffs have been arguing for some time that the deafening silence around lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer LGBTQ Confederate and Union soldiers indicates proof of their very presence. With this month commemorating the th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War, I went combing through Civil War annals to finds our queer brethren -- and did! When shots were fired from Fort Sumter, a fortification near Charleston, S. Those soldiers, unlike today's, did not have to bare their souls to disprove that military readiness is a heterosexual calling, nor did they have to prove that their patriotism to the cause was diminished because of their sexual orientation. If we go with our present-day queer census , it can be estimated that one Confederate or Union soldier in ten fell in our camp. Some queer Civil War buffs would argue that none were dishonorably discharged -- albeit, there is record of three pairs of Navy sailors court-martialed for "improper and indecent intercourse with each other. But the question, some would argue, of who were LGBTQ servicemembers and who weren't in the American Civil War is a disingenuous query since the words "homosexual" and "heterosexual" weren't part of the American lexicon until thirty years after the war ended.
