On DVD label are actual black Confederates as seen by a Yankee officer through his field-glass. The drawing was published in Harper's Weekly, January 10, 1863 with title "Rebel Negro Pickets as Seen Through a Field Glass." Professor Edward C. Smith is one of the foremost authorities in America on black Confederates and the participation of blacks for the Southern side in the War Between the States. He is a professor of Anthropology at American University where he has taught since 1969, and the founder & co-director of the American University Civil War Institute. He is also a Civil War, African-American Cultural Heritage, Art History Lecturer and Study Tour Leader for The Smithsonian Institution, The National Geographic Society, The National Park Service and The Historical Society of Washington, D.C. In this Two-DVD talk that totals over 70 minutes, Professor Smith speaks to an enthusiastic crowd of the Sons of Confederate Veterans at their national convention August 12, 1993 in Lexington, Kentucky. Not only is Professor Smith fascinating and articulate, he is witty and broke the crowd up continuously with laughter and applause. He received a THUNDEROUS standing ovation at the end. You will rave about this talk! This talk contains an incredible amount of information about blacks in American history including those who fought for "the first Confederacy," as Professor Smith says: the American colonies in the Revolution. Professor Smith is indignant at the falsity that often passes for history in this age of political correctness. He speaks of the overwhelming proof of black Southerners marching with whites as soldiers in Confederate armies. He mentions one prominent Yankee observer, Dr. Lewis H. Steiner, Inspector of the United States Sanitary Commission, who observed, firsthand, thousands of black Confederates in Stonewall Jackson's army when it marched out of Frederick, Maryland in 1862.
