played in the history of the American west. It also brings to light the racism exhibited not only by whites toward the Black soldiers but by the Mexicans also.
This is a detailed mostly linear history from the advent of the black regiments throughout their history. I really enjoy that this book is a history not a thinly disguised political work - it's only agenda is history - and an honest one at that. In telling the story of these men from failures to heroism and going to original sources to see their fascinating views of service, white officers and of the native americans - it is a well flushed out history - and brings these men into focus as real men of American history - the good, the bad and the incredibly heroic.
An excellent read for those into Western history and the story of these courageous men.
