Abstract

Given the opportunity to fight for freedom and equality during the Civil War, many Ohio African Americans joined the Union Army. In For Their Own Cause, Kelly Mezurek documents the 27th United States Colored Troops (USCT), one of two black regiments raised primarily in Ohio. This excellent work, based on extensive archival research, gives a human face to the trials and tribulations of these largely forgotten Ohio soldiers.
