African American Soldiers in the Civil War covers its fascinating and under-explored subject from the start of the war in 1861 through the Reconstruction period of the 1870s. Written for students and general readers alike, this volume discusses both the history of African American soldiers in the war and the contemporary relevance of their contributions. This study examines all of the major political, military, social, and economic factors--North and the South--relative to the experiences of African American soldiers during and immediately after the war. In addition, it uses biographies and primary source materials to introduce readers to the accomplishments of black soldiers in the Civil War, as well as to the hardships and discrimination they faced, even as they fought with the Union army for the abolition of slavery.
