From late 1862 to the spring of 1865, as the Civil War raged on, the federal government accepted more than 180,000 newly emancipated black men as soldiers, something it had never done before on such a scale. "Freedom by the Sword" tells the story of these soldiers' recruitment, organization, and service. Thanks to its broad focus on every theater of the war and its concentration on what black soldiers actually contributed to Union victory, this volume stands alone among histories of the U.S. Colored Troops.
