Military Article Excerpts

Whether scouting for the Union, piloting warships, commanding troops or guarding the Redcoats, African-American members of the US Military provided invaluable service to their country. The stories of heroism occur so frequently in our early history that they deserve their own edition. Simply put, there are too many stories of bravery and valor to include in one compilation. When reading the current issue of the African-American Historical News Journal, you are reading only a portion of the many remarkable stories illustrating the exploits of the men and women whose dedication to, and fight for, freedom helped create the country that we love today.
