I have this info---
It is named in honor of Sergeant James Washington, the highest ranking, documented Black soldier serving within the regular component of the Confederate Armed Forces. Sergeant Washington was designated as the Third Sergeant, Company D, 34th Regiment, 11th Texas Cavalry – also known as Terrell’s Texas Cavalry.
Unit rosters showed the 34th to be of multiracial makeup – White, Black, Hispanic and Seminole Indians. Company A had 25 Hispanic and two Black troopers; Company C had 28 Hispanics and five Blacks; Company D was commanded by Capt. Jose Rodriguez and had a Black 3rd Sergeant, James Washington.
Who are these Blacks? Would also like the name of any black Confederate you know of Building a website---
