         Many of these men were loyal to the Confederacy when they were rebs, but when they were offered to help the Union in order to get out of their prisoner-of-war camp they quickly accepted. Though many of the “Galvanized Yankees” were now loyal to the Union, I was wondering if any of these "Galvanized Yankees" still had the Confederacy in mind and if they secretly worked for the Confederacy. Also are there cases of them rebelling against their Union officers in large numbers?
