Re: Beginning USCT Research
In Response To: Re: Beginning USCT Research ()

USCT Rank ..... For the most part USCT's were not included in the commissioned Officer's ranks. And, initially the non-commissioned officers of the USCT's were also "white". Later the ability for USCT's to gain rank as a non-commissioned officer, Cpl. & above, probably depended on the individuals education, skills and/or leadership abilities.

The "star" by his name, where is this seen, an official paper, plaque, or some other notation?

Thanks Art! I have a couple of questions maybe you or someone can answer. First, how common was it for colored soldiers to reach higher ranks? Also, by his name is a star. Does that mean anything? medal?
