Army Life in a Black Regiment, 第 33 巻、第 4 部
Michigan State University Press, 1961 - 235 ページ
In 1862 military necessity enabled Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton to pry from a hesitant President Lincoln the authority to enlist black troops in the Union army. The pioneer regiment of ex-slaves was to secure the beachhead tenuously held at Beaufort, off the South Carolina coast. The commanding officer chosen for the First South Carolina Volunteers was Thomas Wentworth Higginson, a militant human rights activist, writer and lecturer, and former Unitarian minister. This text is Colonel Higginson's own account of his two years at Camp Saxton.

Review: Army Life in a Black Regimentユーザー レビュー - John Price - Goodreads
An interesting book. The author covered more aspects of the men's lives than just preparing them to be soldiers and the missions they were involved in. A good look at part of the Civil War that has not, to my limited knowledge, been heavily covered. レビュー全文を読む
