Wonder what version it will be?

 

A.

"Robert K. Krick’s unpublished article on the number of black Confederates based on an analysis of 100,000 service records. According to Krick only 20 – 30 non-white soldiers could be discerned."

"...Robert Krick, author of 10 books on the Confederacy, says he has studied the records of 150,000 Southern soldiers and found fewer than a dozen were black..."

C.

"...Krick studied the service records for about 200,000 confederate soldiers and found, in his words, 'six, or twelve at the very most' black confederate soldiers..."

Version            Black Confederates                Service Records

A                     20-30                                       100,000

B                      <12                                          150,000

C                     6-12                                         200,000

 

Wow, one number gets smaller while the other gets larger...
