Query: Evidence of Confederate Service by Blacks

A Stephen F. Austin University student and historian Noris White Jr., is searching for primary documents and related evidence of slaves and free black men or women who may have served in the Confederate armies as combat infantrymen, wagoneers, servants, and in other capacities either by choice or otherwise for a book he is researching. If you have old letters, official documents, pension applications, etc. which would identify anyone of this nature, White requests you contact him at  nowhite@embarqmail.com.

    Arkansas Central Library in Little Rock has set of book containing all records from Union and Confederates. This is a large, large set.

    Arkansas and some of the other southern states have extensive collection if the war was fought in their state. You also might check with the Texas State archives.
