If you look at Fold3 you will find a couple more names to add to your list from
Virginia. Austin Dix and Dick Slate were both colored and served as musicians.
They were both free blacks. Austin Dix served from April 1861 through the
Gettysburg campaign and Dick Slate served for one year enlisting in April 1861
and mustering out in 1862. Both men served with the 18th Virginia Infantry.

This thread is about a single resource. We have a thread for counting Black Confederates submitted by members.
Black Confederate Count
Dick Slate has been counted. Austin Dix has not. If you want to add him, look at the first post in the thread for the format and post the information.
