Osprey Warrior 114 : African American Soldier in the Civil War : USCT 1862-1866

Approximately 200,000 African Americans fought for the Union during the Civil War. Initially, many white soldiers doubted their bravery and skill, they were soon proved wrong. The United States Colored Troops performed countless acts of courage, most famously at the battle of Fort Wagner where the 54th Massachusetts marched forth and scaled the parapets, only to be driven back in fierce hand-to-hand combat. Through first-hand accounts, this book examines the journey of the African American from slave to soldier to free man, ultimately providing a insight into the impact that these brave men had on the war and how it influenced their lives thereafter. Text by Mark Lardas with illustrations by Peter Dennis.
