Back to the original premise of this thread.

Were there problems within the Confederacy with the States zealously defending the concept of State's Rights at the expense of the Confederate central government?  To the point it actually did harm to the overall goal of achieving Confederate independence?

We have seen one example of North Carolina refusing to send troops outside of the state to support the defense of the whole Confederacy, and I am certain that Gov. Joe Brown of Georgia also butted heads with Davis over the issue of the Confederate draft and use of Georgia's troops.

Anyone aware of any other examples?
