At first glance, those links give the impression that no black men fought for the Union. Then I guess it is no news that many tens of thousands of freed slaves fought for their freedom in the Union army.

I do have a problem with the concept "fighting for the South". As a southerner, I say that the people who were really fighting for the South in the Civil War was the Union army as they were fighting to free ALL southerners from the tyranny of the Confederate slaveowners.

It's all over the Internet. Being pressed for time, here's one that says 180,000 in the army and 10,000 in the navy. I know that just because there's a link for it doesn't make it gospel truth, but those are generally accepted magnitudes of blacks in the Union cause.

And like southern whites, you often had to be truly dedicated to the cause to overcome all the barriers to even reach Union forces, whereas many southern conscripts and slaves served the Confederate needs only reluctantly.

The slaveowners were adept in getting others to do their dirty work no matter whether the exploited help was southern blacks or southern whites.

Sorry, they were fighting to preserve the union. Not to abolish slavery.

How about the Southern blacks and Northern whites being exploited by the factorycrats in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and specifically in the first community planned around textile manufacturing, Lowell, Mass.?

At the court house in Wilkes County, GA are some photograpths of meetings of Confederate Veterans about 1890 or so. Of the 100 or so gentlemen in the photograth are about 6 to 8 black men. They are in no special place and seemed to be just part of the group. All 100 men are dressed about the same.

Thank you for that interesting fact, U S Army EOD.

There was a similar story at one of the G'burg reunions. Black Confederates showed up and surprised a number of folks; apparently they took their rightful seat among their brothers Union and Confederate for the event.

It's interestin that the Yankee supporters that always trumpet the numbers of Negros in the Union Forces fail to acknowledge that great numbers of those were conscripted. And many of those very unwillingly conscripted , torn from families and home and thrust into the Union service at bayonet point.
How is this different than slavery itself? Even the Rebs did not force the Negros to appear in the heat of battle unwillingly. Yet the Union did this . As they were the victors
at that time , it was easy for them to sweep this little fact under the proverbial rug for quite awhile.
Neither to they mention how vast numbers of 'Contraband' were 'freed' , only to be pushed off their plantations , having their housing burned and food stolen , turned into refugees and not offered much (if any) help and assistance whatsoever. It was one of the greatest human rights disasters in American history . And yet ,still today, people celebrate this and consider it some 'great victory!'

I further contend that the Union's invasion of the South
was the equivalent of the 'first Katrina' .

Thank you sir! I really appreciate the references for future use. How long until we hear the patter of the rat squad's feet coming to try and tell us all these articles are "neo-confederate propaganda"?

NOT a SINGLE slave EVER served IN the CSA forces, though several thousand accompanied their masters to war.

otoh, there was about 100,000 VOLUNTEERS for dixie LIBERTY, who were "persons of colour". their service records UNdeniably EXIST & are the TRUTH.

we southerners KNOW that you scalawags/DYs HATE that idea, but it is TRUE.

to quote the old saying, "if wishes were horses, beggars would ride."

the arrogant, sanctimonious DYs & REVISIONISTS/LEFTISTS do NOT want to KNOW the TRUTH, as the truth makes the unionist cause look precisely what it was: MORALLY WRONG!
