Editorial Reviews

Historian Edward A. Miller, Jr., chronicles the Civil War experience of a representative African American regiment--the 29th United States Colored Infantry. In a comprehensive examination of the unit's composition, contribution, and post-war fate, Miller demonstrates the value of the 29th as a means of understanding the Civil War experience of African American soldiers, including the prejudice that shaped their service. 67 photos.
