Jeremiah Saunders Was Born Into Slavery, But When His Master Died, He Joined The Union Army And Was Eventually Promoted To Corporal.
With the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation in September 1862, African-Americans - both free and runaway slaves - came forward to volunteer for the Union cause in substantial numbers. Beginning in October, approximately 180,000 African-Americans, comprising 163 units, served in the U.S. Army, and 18,000 in the Navy.
