Black Confederates by Charles Kelly Barrow

Book Description

Neither Confederate history nor black studies can afford to ignore the efforts of black Americans on the side of the Confederacy, as this seemingly contradictory behavior reveals and underscores the terrible complexity of the War Between the States. To quote Edward Smith, Dean of Minority Affairs in the August, 1991 edition of The Civil War News: To admit that blacks actually fought for a cause which in the minds of many 20th century Americans now stands exclusively for slavery and oppression is unacceptable to many in the country concerned with only politics and not with the historical record. This volume reflects an effort to restore some accuracy to the historical record with regard to black soldiers who fought for the Confederacy. Through correspondence, military records, narrative reminiscences, and newspaper accounts from these brave men who served what they considered their country, we hope to discover not only that they did fight, but also how they fought to restore honor to the fallen among them.
