Re: Hamburg S.C. race riot of 1876 (WORKING LINK)

Thanks for this link. I tried the other one, and the Netscape reference unsuccessfully. It adds one more piece to my knowledge of the involvement of Prince Rivers-a far too unknown man. Besides his service as a Sergeant in the USCT, he went on to be elected to Congress, serve as a justice of the peace in Hamburg, and hold various offices in the militia. The only image of him I have found is a composite engraving of the black delegates. I would love to hear from anyone with further info on this man, to further augment his bio section in my work on the USCT.

Thanks again!!
