To: P.F., Sandra, and A.C. re Richard poplar "Colored Confederate Soldier"
Interesting exchanges.Strikes me this is proof that some read with eyes wide open--some with eyes wide shut--and some need to turn that extra page.
My question re Mr. Poplar: is there a surviving muster roll of the l3th VA that establishes that this fellow was indeed a soldier (armed and paid as such)? Are there any extant personal records (letters, journals) to support this possibility?
This may well be the only documentation available--and if so, the best that can be extracted from it is the POSSIBILITY--but not the FACT--of military service.
