Dead Confederates, A Civil War Era Blog

On Black Confederates

In the year-and-a-little more this blog has been online, I’ve devoted quite a few posts to the subject of so-called black Confederate soldiers (BCS). It’s not something I set out to do, though I’d followed (and actively participated in) the discussion over BCS on other blogs. But, here we are.

On this page, then, I’ll be aggregating all my past and ongoing posts on the subject, which I hope some readers will find useful. They’re grouped according to subject, but because many posts encompass more than one category, there are a number of repeats.

Biographical Profiles:
