Overview

Freedom's Soldiers: The Black Military Experience in the Civil War by Ira Berlin, Joseph Patrick Reidy, Leslie S. Rowland

When nearly 200,000 black men, most of them former slaves, entered the Union army and navy, they transformed the Civil War into a struggle for liberty and changed the course of American history. Freedom's Soldiers tells the story of those men in their own words and the words of other eyewitnesses. These moving letters, affidavits, and memorials--drawn from the records of the National Archives--reveal the variety and complexity of the African-American experience during the era of emancipation.
