    The U.S.C.T. was involved with the Battle of The Crater, the Battle of Fort Wagner and the Battle of Nashville. Were they involved in the battles and campaigns in the other theatres, other than being garrison troops?

    Quite a lot, Port Hudson comes to mind, Bermuda 100, Saltville, Milkens Bend. By the end there were well above 100,000 black men in the field and they paid quite a price for their service.

    Below you will see the service history of pretty much every black unit in the US Army. Their contribution was Legion, more men than the Regulars and greater than some states.

    41 major engagements, 449 smaller. Better than 37k died in service. By the end of the war 12% of the US Army were black men. 7,122 officers and 178,895 men in the ranks of the USCT. 80% from states of the CS. Something like 90% of the officers were combat veterans so they were typically far better officered than their white counterparts, on either side.
