This excellent new military history is a recommended pick for any specialty collection strong in in-depth coverage.
Library Bookwatch (July 2007)
This brief study examines the USCT experience, from recruiting and training to camp life and the troops' performance in battle. The presentation is largely in the form of the troops' own words, in the form of extracts from their memoirs and oral histories, many of which are from the 'Slave Narratives' collected by the Federal Writers' Project in the 1930s...For those interested in pursuing the topic, there is a helpful list of further reading and a summary of museum and web site resources.
