|Albert; over the years I've found some from Arkansas, Texas and Alabama as well that detail black men fighting but they are very few and far between. I believe the records of Appomatox were parused by a historian and he found 27 Black men in the ranks. It is important to take a hard look at pension records as applicants had to be vouched for by other veterans and their comments can be very interesting, whether they have anything to do w/ the black CS subject or not. Some are an outright hoot, others quite touching.
