"...free blacks in the Confederate army..."

-National Archives Compiled Service Records

"Even slaves had ample opportunity to exercise their "political loyalty" by simply walking away from camp or while on the march."

-Confederate pension applications where they show servants (slaves) with the army for several years to the end of the war.
