Book Review: The Black Civil War Soldier by Deborah Willis

This book is an interesting look into the lives of African-American soldiers who fought in the Civil War. Many of them escaped, in order to join the Union Army…for the mere thought of freedom.

A good portion of the book is visual. The men were so proud to be in uniform, that they took plenty of pictures as proof (even though many were not allowed to have weapons).

What I loved about this book was the numerous letters that were exchanged between soldier and wife, army generals, etc. I never thought about those left behind…until now. I literally read all 241 pages in one night.

I highly recommend this πŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’Ž book to lovers of historical fiction.
