Army Life in a Black Regiment

Army Life in a Black RegimentThomas Wentworth Higginson These pages record some of the adventures of the First South Carolina Volunteers, the first slave regiment mustered into the service of the United States during the late civil war. It was, indeed, the first colored regiment of any kind so mustered, except a portion of the troops raised by Major-General Butler at New Orleans. These scarcely belonged to the same class, however, being recruited from the free colored population of that city, a comparatively self-reliant and educated race.We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection.
