S05 E35: The United States Colored Troops (USCT) of the Pacific Northwest with Cynthia Wilson

After the Civil War and the Reconstruction Era, African Americans continued to feel the same pain of slavery through the Jim Crow Era.

To some, sharecropping was just another form of slavery with very little wages and little to no help provided after the Civil War ended. The one saving grace was the ability to move somewhere else that may not have been as bad as it was where they were living. This is what some of the men of the United States Colored Troop did. But where did they go?

Join us as we talk with Cynthia Wilson as she discusses her discovery of men who were formerly soldiers of the United States Colored Troops who relocated to Washington State.
