I am helping out the FTW cause by looking up CSA and US Officers entry date and state. During my research I found out the following (which I was unaware of)
Frank Crawford Armstrong (November 22, 1835 – September 8, 1909) was a United States Army cavalry officer and later a brigadier general in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. He is also known for being the only Confederate general to fight on both sides during the Civil War.[1]Armstrong was a captain in the regular army. He led a company of Union cavalry at the First Battle of Bull Run.[4] However, Armstrong resigned his commission and on August 10, 1861, he joined the Confederate Army.[1] As Armstrong's Union resignation did not go into effect until August 13, he was technically on both sides at the same time.[1]

That's real neat, was he any relations to George?

So he was receiving pay from both sides? That gives new meaning to "double-dipping".[:D]
