Re: Black Civil War Veterans
In Response To: Black Civil War Veterans ()
I have done extensive research on African Americans in the Grand Army of the Republic for my dissertation on this subject. I have identified most of the all-black posts in the nation and many integrated posts. If anyone has a question on this subject please contact me. I wrote an essay on African-American posts in Pennsylvania using the R. G. Shaw records and other sources in "Making and Remaking Pennsylvania's Civil War"--published by Penn State Press. My dissertation is about black membership in the GAR as a national phenomenon.
