Read the book Nine April Days.
I've read several books on the period. The fact of the matter is that the confederacy didn't enlist more than a handful of blacks for combat duty, a few hundred at most. There weren't enough of them to give Custer, or any other Union cavalry division, their "worst whup'n" of the war.
None so deaf as those who refuse to hear, like I said read the book. It came out during the centennial.
