About the Book – Forged in Battle: The Civil War Alliance of Black Soldiers and White Officers


Forged in Battle: The Civil War Alliance of Black Soldiers and White Officers
by Joseph T. Glatthaar
Paperback Book, 384 pages
Description
Sixteen months after the start of the American Civil War, the Federal government, having vastly underestimated the length and manpower demands of the conflict, began to recruit black soldiers. This revolutionary policy gave 180,000 free blacks and former slaves the opportunity to prove themselves on the battlefield as part of the United States Colored Troops. By the end of the war, 37,000 in their ranks had given their lives for the cause of freedom.

In Forged in Battle, award-winning historian Joseph T. Glatthaar dramatically re-creates the events that gave these troops and their 7,000 white officers justifiable pride in their contributions to the Union victory and hope of equality in the years to come. Unfortunately, as Glatthaar poignantly demonstrates, memory of the United States Colored Troops’ heroic sacrifices soon faded behind the prejudice that would plague the armed forces for another century.
