There is a famous case but I forget the name where the US Supreme Court basically said what ever the Union and Confedrate Armies did in the ACW was ok and those who fought in the ACW could not be sued. @jgoodguy you might know this case.
Thanks

I know of no such case.

What you may remember is a case that ruled that actions legal under military law of either Union or the CSA could not be litigated in civil court.

You might try LeFlore vs Forrest, but it was a case in Mississippi. It seemed property disputes were within the state, not on the federal level.
