The North Carolina Negro in the Civil War

Joseph Askew

The Black man played an important role in the Civil War and was the main work force that brought it to an immediate end once they were allowed to enlist. Firstly, the Civil War was thought of as a war betweem White men. But the issue of slavery had not been resolved. The Union was the first to free the slaves and then allow them to participate in the Civil War. These brave Black Bad Men of Color fought in every major battle and received medals of honor. History has forgotten these courageous men and in fact has excluded them for the history books. The Black Experience Call acknowledges some of these Black Soldiers who participated in the Civil War .
