  I have no problem with your estimate of 1300 black Confederate soldiers, and your belief that most served in western regiments. Its more than I would have guessed, but obviously, you have researched the question more than I have.

  I agree that those who maintain that there were: "Tens of thousands" should be challenged and refuted. But the ones who bother me more are those whose prejudices prevent them from acknowledging that ANY black men could have voluntarily served as Confederate soldiers.
