"How many do you want me to list?- "
I checked the CWSS site and found your James Farley (Colored). He was 1 of 2,225 recorded as being with the 25th Tenn Cav. There was also John Cumins and a John Cummings perhaps the same person listed as a waiter. If he too was "colored" that would make 2 out of 2,225. I viewed all 2,225 from Aarons, Robert to Young, Martin. How many did I miss?
Also vewed the 29th Tenn to which Alexander chance was listed. He along with a Canon were listed as colored pvt's. There were about 7 others (colored)listed as Laborers or Cooks. This was from a total of roster of 1,923 viewed. Were there more with this unit?
Let's see that is approximately 10 of 4,148 for those 2 Confederate units, with 3 listed as privates. I'm sure there were many, many more who were "impressed" into duty for these units, but only these few made the "official" roster.
What's up with that?
