Re: Myth of AfricanAmerican Confederate Soldier

A confederate plaque would be funny. Actually I was thinking of a plaque documenting "Alternative Civil War Service". There were African Americans who served with
all white Union units from various states. There were people like my ancestor who were "Galvanized Yankees". There were numerous African American spies who worked for Pinkerton across the South who deserve mention. Many stepped up to service for the Union and not just thru joining the US Colored Troops.
