About this title


Drawing on diaries and letters, an award-winning Civil War historian offers the first comprehensive, copiously illustrated military history of black soldiers in the Union army, vividly recreating their courage in the face of battle.


Like Men of War corrects a sad case of historical amnesia that began in the 1880s and continues, with only a few exceptions, into the present. Using letters, diaries, service records, and other contemporary material, Noah Andre Trudeau tells the story of the brave black men who fought and died for their freedom in the U.S. Civil War. The tale begins in 1862, when many in the Union opposed recruiting blacks as soldiers. The story ends after Reconstruction, with their hopes for equality dashed, as Federal troops ceded control of the South to Southerners. In addition to photographs, Like Men of War includes about 60 maps and accounts of many of the 449 engagements in which blacks fought.
