Is based on the first book ever published on the First Regiment, USCT, organized in Washington, DC in the spring of 1863. This regiment fought its way across a dozen bloody battlefields in Virginia and North Carolina during the American Civil War. Men of "African Descent" flocked to its ranks from the Eastern Seaboard States, Canada and the Caribbean. The men, fugitive enslaved and free blacks, assembled and trained against a tumultuous backdrop of political infighting, ambitious generals, and racism so naked and violent that the soldiers were sent to an island in the middle of the Potomac River to escape attacks by pro-Confederate ruffians in the nation's capital, the heart of the Union. At the end of the war, the regiment made history by being the first African American troops to be received by the President of the United States at the White House during a District of Columbia Emancipation Day Parade.
