Ole; you asked for sources on black laboreres being the only Pioneers in Sherman's Army.   This is a patently incorrect statement w/ nothing I've ever read to back such a statement up.  Strongly worded?  Probably.  bad geriatric Ole, no lutefisk.  There were typically 20 pioneers per Regiment w/ a lot of contrabands earning rations and pay alongside, how many, I've read as many as 7000 recently freed slaves joined up w/ Shermans Army in Ga & SC in such a capacity w/ a large number marching in the Grand Review. 

You asked for some sources Ole... Pioneer data is spread thinly throughout.
