Myth of AfricanAmerican Confederate Soldier

In recent years, certain historians and groups such as the Sons of Confederate Veterans have espoused a revisionist view of the Confederate Army during the Civil War: one in which African Americans fought side by side with white soldiers for the cause of the South.

This idea of African American Confederate soldiers--the so-called "Black Confederate myth"--has already been debunked, yet somehow the belief has not only gained ground but has even been reported in some respected mainstream forums, as well as being included in a textbook approved by a Virginia school system.
