Re: Union army, Union soldiers
The post mentioned the lack of first hand sources that you use. Do you have muster rolls or enlistment rosters or pension applications that describe all these Black Confederates. No you don't. When you can produce just facts. Real facts George. Not the views you get from pro-Confederate wenbsites, that will be evidence. Again show me the enlisted papers, the mustering out rolls and the pension files. The information for Union Blacks is readily available at the Civil War Soliders and Sailors site and from the National Archives. Perhaps you should read an article or two that doesn't always parrot back your own view. Have a nice day George.
