The forgotten black confederate fighting men

This is the first-ever book that has presented a groundbreaking account of the significant contribution of the Confederacy’s first official Black Confederate soldiers. The Richmond Government formed them in their first action at the forgotten Battle of Painesville in Virginia on April 5, 1865. More than 200 Black Confederates performed exceptionally well in safeguarding the wagon train with vital supplies that General Robert E. Lee’s Army needed during their westward retreat after the Richmond and Petersburg, Virginia evacuation. Dr. Tucker unfolds the pivotal role of the Confederacy’s first officially recognized Black Confederate soldiers in one of the concluding battles of the Civil War. This book sheds light on their significant contribution to Black history.
