Yes, black soldiers fought for the Confederacy. Sharpshooters, uniformed pickets with uniforms and weapons and artillerymen were observed and recorded in Federal troops ' reports. Pay records and muster rolls exist in the National Archives. Pay for a teamster was $40/month whereas a Confederate private received $11. Many more were body servants who accompanied their owners and functioned as an enlisted aide to an officer would function today, except we are talking continuous field duty in the 1860s. Teamsters, laborers, cooks, musicians, medical orderlies, foragers, and skilled laborers at Tredegar Ironworks in Richmond are among what would be called combat support today. Slaves at Tredegar were paid. their owner got 50% of the regular wage, but the slave received the other 50% and OVERTIME. Bet you didn't learn that in school! After the war, blacks went to Confederate reunions in uniform. Some had their travel expenses paid by their communities to attend the reunion. Many had Confederate PENSIONS.

This book answers black criticism of the Confederate battle flag, the South, and why 300,000 blacks, free and slave, armed themselves to resist Lincolns' invasions. It's all in the letters, documents, newspapers, monuments, and recorded memory of the black confederate veterans.

Excellent reading for Historians and Civil War enthusiasts. Although we were always taught that slavery was
the main reason for the War. The fact that the Union 54th Massachusetts was the 1st all black soldiers regiment
is incorrect according to the author. As the CSA had 3 black regiments prior to the 54th. Also refers to the
unwritten record of black CSA soldiers being shot when surrendering.

This great book gives evidence that many blacks fought FOR the Confederacy. There are actually confederate monuments dedicated to blacks. Another reason confederate memorials should be allowed to exist. Every American should read this book. The conferacy was actually taking steps to abolish slavery PRIOR to Lincoln's War. This is only one of many books out there that tell us the TRUTH about the Civil War, NOT what we were taught in school.

This is a well researched and readable book that describes a part of American history the liberals would like to have us forget.

More people should read history like this, instead of "hollywood" history.
