If continue to believe that Blacks served in the Confederate army -- so be it. You are beating a dead horse with one poor old worn out source. Just so you know you are not my real target, I just use you as a vehicle to post more information. I also make it a policy not to argue with those who wish to remain ignorant about a historical point. It is clear you have a biased opinion and refuse to even consider the possibility of any number of blacks fighting for the Confederacy, yet you cannot post sources that sate otherwise. I have posted plenty of factual information to back up my point that yes blacks did fight for the south, I challenge you to do the same to sustain your point. To be sure I do not care one way or the other except for historical accuracy.
According to this website if the 13,000 figure is right about those that saw the elephant, then that would man more Black Confederate died in battle than USCT.
Be sure and note this passage and date --- "There are at the present moment many Colored men in the Confederate Army doing duty not only as cooks, servants and laborers, but real soldiers, having musket on their shoulders, and bullets in their pockets, ready to shoot down any loyal troops and do all that soldiers may do to destroy the Federal government and build up that of the rebels."
