The Melungeons. Note that the famous Vardy Collins was far too old to have served in the Civil War. There was a Vardy Collins, maybe his grandson, who served in the Union army. There was no Vardy Collins in the Confederate army. Almost all Melungeons who fought in the Civil War were in the Union Army. This identification was so strong that for a time "Melungeon" meant a person from Tennessee who took the Union side.
