Historians such as Earl Ijames have learned that very little about the Civil War was black and white, even when it came to the hues of the soldiers' skin.
Ijames, a curator at the N.C. Museum of History and a former staffer in the state Office of Archives and History, has become something of an expert on a group of black soldiers many people don't know -- or don't want to know -- existed.
