In Israelites in Blue and Gray, Lawrence M. Ginsburg erodes a void in the ranks of ethnically-affiliated units engaged in the Civil War. Since little has been written about Jewish sponsored groupings in particular, the profiles, which are the subject of this study, focus upon a couple of unchronicled exceptions from divergent sides of the Mason-Dixon line.
