Link to book
While researching an article reporting 12 colored troops were executed in June 1865, I stumbled across this free book published by the U.S. Army Center of Military History. Thought I would share the link for anyone interested. Now a question. I found this small clip in a Missouri newspaper but can not find anything else on it. Anyone know more? TIA
