19th Century Wikileaks: Official US Government Records Document Black Confederates

19th Century Wikileaks: Official US Government Records Document Black Confederates:

    Due to the recent controversy surrounding the fact that there were Black Confederate soldiers serving in the Confederate States Military, in which it is currently said "most historians deny that there were Black Confederates" and where they commonly refer to them as "myths".
    19th Century Wikileaks has found it necessary to list accounts from the "Official Records of the War of the Rebellion" or more simply the "Official Records" or "ORs" in order to bring to light the unpopular yet true fact that, yes, Black Confederates existed.
    The Official Records constitute the most extensive collection of primary sources of the history of the war. They include selected first-hand accounts, orders, reports, maps, diagrams, and correspondence drawn from War and Navy Department records of both Confederate and Union governments."
