The U.S. Colored Troops at Andersonville Prison

Book - 2009
Rate this:
This is the untold record of the over 100 Union black soldiers who suffered confinement at the infamous Andersonville Prison in Georgia. The men, representing ten regiments but mostly from the 8th USCT and the 54th Massachusetts Volunteers, were among only 776 USCT prisoners in a war in which over 180,000 USCT participated. Usually, instead of taking USCT prisoners, the Confederates killed the USCT men. Remarkably, though the men suffered from lack of clean water, very little food and almost no medicine, all but one of the thirty-four USCT men who died there have marked graves with their names and regiments.
