Black Civil War Veterans

[x-posted from the Genealib mail list, dated 5-5-04]

Does anyone know if black veterans were allowed to join the GAR? Was there a separate veterans' organization for the black veterans?

I was looking at Civil War Times today and there was a reference to some black units which made me wonder about the veterans' organizations. I've never seen anything that mentioned it.

Thank you.
