Virginia's initial response to the news of the war was the patriotic reply of all citizens when the national flag is attacked. Within a few days, however, the party strife over the origin of the war and the fight for the political pie to be gained at its conclusion began. The state at this time, and the resulting political maneuvering thwarted a more active support of the war.
