Does anybody know if the original article, lists any of the sources/documentation for the subject at hand.
I read a lot of similar information in the Wyles special collection at UCSB when I was a student at Westmont College from 74-77. This is factual information. A lot of Blacks did desert after the EP was issued by Lincoln. But some still stayed loyal to the South out of cultural issues. For instance, Stonewall Jackson's, aide was a Black that was loyal to both him & the South until he died & the war was over. The fact of the matter is that the liberal press won't touch this on. I've only read one report of Black serving with Confederates in the past 3 yrs. by the liberal press. According to them it was all lies. But the evidence is there. I've read it & seen it.
