15 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Col. Roland Martell on February 12, 2001
Format: Paperback
The effort in research and documentation of this book is excellent. However the premise that US Hispanics of the War Between the States Era may have been non-Caucasians is simply unrealistic. Most Old Spanish families from Florida and Louisiana and many from Texas, New Mexico and California were Criollos, (of European stock born in the Americas), descendants of the original and subsequent Spanish settlers. Many were slave owners, which was not against their morality or customs.
Although most Latin American countries did free the slaves upon gaining their independence from Spain, Cuba and Puerto Rico did not free their slaves until much later after the War Between the States. Most US Hispanics from the Southeast were Spanish-Cubans and Cuba did not finally free its slaves until 1886.
US Hispanics were patriotic Southerners and were among, if not the first to volunteer when their states seceded from the Union.
Later immigrations from Latin America, particularly the last 25 years or so brought great numbers of non-Caucasians to the US.
Most Hispanic immigrants prior to the 1980's were predominantly White, particulary the large numbers of Cuban emigrees who came in the 1950's and 1960's and unto our days, of whom approximately 95% are White.

Format: Paperback
This careful listing of some of the thousands of Hispanics who served the Confederacy is the first work of its kind and long overdue. The author has dealt with available records to offer a glimpse of those Hispanic Southerners who served with honor and valor.
To delve deeper into the topic of Hispanic Confederates, the reader should seek information on Confederate Col. Santos Benavides and his Benavides Texas Cavalry. His regiment, 80% Hispanic and 20% German, served with great distinction.
The author is reported to have a new listing of French Confederates in the pipeline.

As a educated man I revel in the exploration of our diverse American History. We have for so long neglected this perspective of a diverse army of citizens who sought to defend thier states rights. Mr.O'Donnell-Rosales took great care to include the many facets of hispanic culture. For these reasons I felt compelled to share my thoughts with you ... enjoy!!

Format: Paperback
The author presents a most informative and fascinating view of the true composition of the Confederate forces. It is an absolute must read for any student researching the Civil War, Confederate History or the Hispanic influences in America. After reading this book, I find myself curious about the demographics of soldiers in various other wars (WWI, WWII and Vietnam) and give the author credit for not only informing through his writing but for stimulating continued thought and research. Highly recommended!

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By S.Harvey Roach on August 7, 2000
Format: Paperback
Professor John O'Donnell-Rosales has compiled a comprehensive listing of Hispanic Confederate soldiers and naval personnel.This work will be beneficial to both those of Hispanic origin interested in genealogical research as well as Civil War students looking for further details on the true composition of Confederate forces.
The idea that the Civil War was fought by armies and navies made up only of Caucasian forces is factually incorrect. Minorities participated on both sides in many different roles. This book documents one of those areas in a very informative, effective way. I recommend it!
