Choctaws side with South

Choctaw Brigade Confederate flag
  • The General Council of the Choctaw Nation passes a resolution expressing distress over the secession crisis, but making it clear “that in the event a permanent dissolution of the American Union takes place, our many relations with the General Government must cease, and we shall be left to follow the natural affections, education, institutions, and interests of our people, which indissolubly bind us in every way to the destiny of our neighbors and brethren of the Southern States, upon whom we are confident we can rely for the preservation of our rights of life, liberty, and property, and the continuance of many acts of friendship, general counsel, and material support.”/1861
