On you P.S. we are not that far apart in our views, my take is never quit looking until we know it all, and analyze what is found. I won't promote any Confederate Black units unless I have documented proof. What I do believe from all I've read in the past and very recently, the Confederate military machine was not all lilly white.
I know I'm monopolizing this subject, I like to share and it only going to more intense after last nights discoveries, so please let me know if you want me to change to something else.
