    The Black Confederate By: Tom Darby · Section: Diaries Contrary to popular historical education and Southern revisionists, there is much evidence that African-American's served their country not only in the Union army but also in the Confederate army and navy.

It was the commanders in...

Just outside of Ruston we were met by a reporter from the Ruston Daily Leader Newspaper. We made the front page of...

    Spotsylvania resident Willie Levi Casey Jr. is an African-American member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and proud to be Southern. By LAURA MOYER The Free Lance-Star Date published: Sun, 06/30/2002 ROCKVILLE--In the Hanover County woods where men in blue and men in gray are shooting at each other, it's all noise and smoke and stink. Across a field there's cannon fire so loud it resets your heartbeat for you. Horses whicker, and men shout. Fog-thick gunpowder smoke gives off a rotten-egg reek. For Confederate Pvt. Casey of the 6th North Carolina State Troop, a Civil War re-enactment unit, the...
