In 1860 a man's loyalty was to his home State first and foremost. It was so for Lee and Cleburne...the terms State and Country are synonymous.
"As to my own position, I hope to see the Union preserved by granting the South the full measure of her constitutional rights. If this cannot be done, I hope to see all the Southern States united in a new confederation and that we can effect a peaceable separation. If both of these are denied us, I am with Arkansas in weal or woe…” Patrick Cleburne
