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.
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.
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!
