Black Confederate Soldiers?


The Montgomery Advertiser has published a story about some black Gadsden men who some say served as confederate soldiers in the Civil War. And it quotes the P.R. person for the Alabama Historical Commission, who seems to want to have it both ways:


“Whether or not they are defined as soldiers is a subject of debate...historians as a whole are not always in complete agreement, and that is important. Different perspectives offer us more opportunities for critical thinking.”
