I agree with that Edward. Those words are cause to stop and think when they're on an exam. I don't doubt the main intent was to be the cook and bottle washer but when the bullets were flying it may have been the cook shooting some of them. If we are seeing so many references on Blacks fighting with the Confederate soldiers, somethings going on. Maybe they were enrolled or taken in as a musician or servant but due to the Confederate leaders own policy, they couldn't be listed as 'soldiers' but acted as such on occasion. We just do not know for sure.
