Re: US Volunteers vs US Regulars vs USCT
Yet 180,000 black men would find conditions worth while to serve in the Union Army and another 20,000 in the Naval service. By the end of the war there was 80 comissioned black officers in the Union Army. How many in the Confederate Army? Men of black descent would command ships in the Revenue Cutter Service. Yes there was prejudice but these men knew that if the Union won, they would be free.
