I think loyalty to friends and neighbors was a large factor in Southerners choosing to fight for the Confederacy.  We need to remember that people felt greater attachment to their state.  Lee felt that he couldn't take up arms against the people of Virginia despite his decades in the U.S. Army. 

Obviously, that was a big factor in Cleburne's opting for the South.
