You certainly want to be sure about this. A number of years ago a lady asked me to authenticate her ancestor's discharge papers from the 1st Florida cavalry, as she wished to join the local UDC chapter. The discharge was for the 1st Florida Cavalry, but it was the US edition which would not help her with the UDC.
Your ancestor's application should include suficient detail to determine which side he joined. Perhaps you could review the document and pass these details along to us.
