In the Davis Tillson biography  , it mentions his involvement with the 3rd NC Mounted Infantry which is described as a regiment of former slaves that performed scout and patrol duties.  Since the 3rd NC was a white regiment, I am trying to figure this out.  Was there also a colored 3rd NC that later changed it's name?  Or is the wrong name listed in the bio?  I need help because this ended up on a NC Civil War Trails marker and we are trying to correct.  Thanks

Here the link to the bio
