This interesting article on Duke University's Lawfire site addresses some of the most complex and controversial legal aspects of the war: the post-war status of those who served in the Confederate government and military, the definition of treason, and the legal impact of pardons and paroles. It also links to other articles on these topics. There's a lot to digest, and as the article points out, like many things about the Civil War, it's complicated...:snip:
