In this episode, we chat with educator, historian, and author Kevin M. Levin about his book Searching for Black Confederates: The Civil War’s Most Persistent Myth.
To be clear, the discussion wasn’t about whether enslaved and free black men were part of the Confederate Army. They were. What is under discussion is the capacity in which they served and the distinction between body servants, camp slaves, and soldiers.
We cover quite a bit of ground in this episode, including records, repositories, and archives you can access to research enslaved and free men who were part of the body of the Confederate Army.
