Book Description

This book tells of the contribution of African Americans to the cause of the Union in the American Civil War. At first shunned, free blacks and ex-slaves eventually donned uniforms and fought in more than 400 battles. Despite blatant prejudice and discrimination, they proved their valour and contributed hugely to the success of the Union.
