BY WARS END OVER 200,000 BLACK SOLDIERS AND SAILORS HAD SERVED THE UNION.  THAT REPRESENTED OVER 20% OF ALL OF THE UNION FORCES.  :nod:
I'm an Army Civilian and former Soldier on the Army Team. I'm dedicated to my Army, Soldiers and Civilians. I will always support the mission. I provide stability and continuity during war and peace. I'll support and defend the Constitution and consider it an honor to serve our nation and my Army.

The Union very much needed the Black troops.  We need more books on them.
