Although Tennessee was a Confederate State, she provided men to both sides of the war. An estimated 187,000 Tennesseans served in the Confederate Army while 51,000 Tennesseans served in the Union Army.

The Union named its armies after major rivers while the Confederates named their armies after states. As a result, during the war, the Union had an army called "Army of the Tennessee" while the Confederates had an army called "Army of Tennessee."

After Virginia, Tennessee had the highest numbers of battles fought within her borders. Of the ten costliest battles of the Civil War, the Battle of Stones River, Battle of Shiloh, and the Battle of Fort Donelson ranked 8th, 9th, and 10th, respectiveley.
