In Response To: Women Service in the Civil War ()
Hi Melvin: An (in-law) ancestor of mine was a slave, who was recruited by the 1st Connecticut Cavalry, in Fairfax County, Virginia in 1862 and was hired as a scout/ blacksmith and performed his duties until the surrender at Appomatox Court House, where the returns place the 1st Conn. Cav. on Apri 9,1865.
