Name the border States during the Civil War?
During the US Civil War, states that had not joined the
Confederacy, but were slave states, were termed the "border
states". They are as follows:
A. Maryland, Kentucky, Missouri, and Delaware; and
B. There always a Confederate hope that either the former three ones mentioned would eventually secede.
During the American Civil War there were five states which stayed neutral and were given the name "border" states. They were called border states because they each bordered a free state and were aligned with the union. The five border states were Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, and West Virginia.
