NJ USCT Files

This series contains miscellaneous documents relating to individual soldiers (both black and white) in the United States Colored Troops who were credited to New Jersey. A few of the files relate to black soldiers in other non-New Jersey units (e.g., the Massachusetts Colored Cavalry); however, information on African-Americans who served in New Jersey units (as cooks, for example), or black naval recruits who were credited to the state, can be found with the records for those units. The files in this series were created from papers contained in the former Civil War binders #252-255. In all, about 600 soldiers are documented in these files (as compared to over 2,900 who served from New Jersey in the United States Colored Troops).
