Quotes about black soldiers in the Civil War~

  • "The next hospital I enter will, I hope, be one for the colored regiments, as they seem to be proving their right to the admiration and kind offices of their white relations, who owe them so large a debt, a little of which I shall be so proud to pay."  —- Louisa May Alcott, Author of Little WomenHospital Sketches, 1863

    "Do you know that if it was not for the black men this war never would have been brought to a close with success to the Union, and the liberty of your race, if it had not been for the Negro.  I want you to understand that."  —-- Major Martin R. Delaney, African American recruiter and first black staff officer in the US military, 1865
