About the Authors
  • 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.

    • A moving account of the role of African-American soldiers in the American Civil War, illustrated with rare photographs
    • Includes letters written by former slaves describing their wartime experiences
