When Kentucky neutrality ended, Lincoln's military commanders struggled to keep the people loyal to the Union. Commanders were chosen carefully as the number one criteria was that the man be from Kentucky. When talk began of a Confederate Army advancing quickly toward Louisville, many Kentuckians believed it was time to take action. The state was so divided, however, that it was difficult to mobilize any residents. Lincoln continued assigning pro-Union commanders to the state in hopes of eventually winning over the entire citizenry.
