Description
 
John Zubritsky (au). Chronicles the stories of three African-Americans who joined the Union Army to make their race free. To Elijah Dorsey, who had risked his life escaping from a plantation, the Army promised freedom. To Fletcher Howard, whose outspoken views on racial equality had cost him two jobs, the Army held out the hope that he could provide for his family. To Major Augustus T. Alexander, one of the few African-Americans commissioned during the Civil War, the Army offered the opportunity to serve his people. One of them won a Congressional Medal of Honor, & one was present at Appomattox. This is their story. Photos.
