Summary:
When the Civil War began, the North resisted enlisting black troops. That soon changed. A demoralizing defeat at Bull Run in 1861, and the flood of slaves escaping to Union lines, challenged President Lincoln to consider the degree to which slaves would be willing to fight for their freedom. Black troops became the great available force for restoring the Union. The United States Colored Troops were among the first Union troops to enter Charleston, the flashpoint for the rebellion, and Richmond, the capital of the Confederacy. This book describes the bravery and battlefield accomplishments of black troops and their important contribution to the end of slavery and the Union victory in the Civil War.--Back cover.
