This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the contested regions of eastern Kentucky and southwestern Virginia during the American Civil War. Just as the Civil War tore communities and families apart, the years of recovery that followed were expected to draw them back together. This transition failed to proceed smoothly because the divisions fostered and reinforced through four years of armed conflict remained especially pronounced along the borderland of the war in eastern Kentucky and southwestern Virginia.
