Most "Black Confederate" sites state that slave companies, battalions and regiments fought from Manassas to Appomattox in Confederate ranks. I'm pleased to learn that you don't agree. As mentioned during a recent exchange between Jim Martin and myself on this topic, it makes moden-day advocates of the Confederate cause look ridiculous. That's my main objection. Hopefully nothing I wrote in my earlier post was taken as a personal afront to you.
