Robert G. Shaw Post 206, GAR - Pittsburgh
In Response To: Black Civil War Veterans ()
Here's a recent News article on this very topic. One of my colateral relatives was a member of Robert G. Shaw Post 206, GAR in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (There is a new book out on this Post). In addition, my great grandfather joined the Sons of Union Veterans, based on his father's service in the USCT, and in the early 1900's hosted many town-wide celebrations in honor of the Veterans.
