Re: RUMOR AND CONFUSION-BLACK CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS
I am amazed at some of the comments on this website. I am a white man who has spent many years trying to understand why my family fought for the confederate army, why they fought for the union army, and why they deserted the confederate army and went over to the union army. My southern ancestors lived in Onslow County NC. Eastern NC is very interesting and complicated when it comes to the civil war. I have cases of one brother fighting for the Union, another for the Confederacy.
My point in all of this is that the south did use black soldiers. They only considered it at the very end of the war because they were desperate.
