BLACKS IN THE UNION ARMY OF TENNESSEE (1861-1866) Black Tennesseans were active participants in the American Civil War. They contributed immeasurably to the Union victory. In 1860, Tennessee had 275,719 slaves, who represented twenty-five percent of the population. Tennessee also had 7,300 free blacks in 1860, but they suffered racial discrimination and second-class citizenship without the right to vote. The slaves were owned by 36,894 persons, less than twenty percent of Tennessee's white families. The majority non-slaveholding whites belonged to the yeoman class (farmers and the poor, landless white class). Many white ( i.e. , East) Tennesseans opposed slavery and wanted it stopped.
After the Civil War hostilities began at Fort Sumter, South Carolina (in April, 1861), Tennessee's radical Democrats, slaveowners, and southern nationalists led a campaign for secession. The voters defeated the first secession ordinance. But in May, 1861, emotions and pressure by the pro-Confederates ran high after Fort Sumter, causing the secession ordinance to pass. Still the Confederates were no more than a vocal minority because white Unionists (thirty-five percent) and blacks (twenty-six percent) outnumbered them. However, the Confederate minority used conscription acts, loyalty requirements, intimidation, racist propaganda, outright oppression, and occupation of East Tennessee to control most Tennessee inhabitants.
The illegal control of Tennessee by the minority Confederates was short-lived. They never had real support among the people in the countryside and could not command the state's resources to effectively prosecute the war. In great paradox, even the slaveowners generally refused to furnish slave labor for the Confederate army. The Confederate General Assembly passed a law to draft free blacks as military laborers in June of 1861.

Gen Nathan B Forrest and Ft Pillow
Up Letters The Memphis Speech [ Gen Nathan B Forrest and Ft Pillow ] General Nathan Bedford Forrest and Fort Pillow
Recently there has been a renewed statement of antagonism toward Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest in our area as a part of the statement of anger toward the Confederate flag. At the opposite pole are those who have much admiration for Gen. Forrest. It is my opinion that many of those who are singling out Gen. Forrest know very little about him and are largely influenced by what they have read that came from the Northern Press during the War Between the States. Mr. Jack Hurst, in 1993, published what I consider the best book written on Gen. Forrest, entitled Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Biography . In it Hurst did an excellent job in describing Forrest's pre-military life and the times in which he lived. He gave us an excellent picture of the man as a person. From Hurst, it is apparent that Gen. Forrest was an opportunist throughout his life but was also, at the same time, a man of pride who tried hard to live his life with a high code of ethics. This nature permitted him to progress from a poor lad with very little education and one whose father died when he was young, to a man of considerable wealth by 1861; to progress from an enlisted private to a Lieutenant General in the Confederate Army; to become a military leader so effective that Gen. Sherman said that the war in the west could not be won as long as Gen. Forrest was alive; to become a handler of cavalry so effective that the German High Command sent military men to Tennessee and Mississippi before WWII to study his tactics, and then applied them to their Panzer Units during WWII.

    The history of Arlington National Cemetery is steeped in the Civil War, for is was this great national struggle that necessitated the establishment of this cemetery to bury its many dead. For many years following the war, the bitter feelings between North and South remained, and although hundreds of confederate soldiers were buried at Arlington, it was considered a Union cemetery. Family members of Confederate soldiers were denied permission to decorate their loved ones' graves and in extreme cases were even denied entrance to the cemetery.
    Peaked hadstones that mark the graves of Conferdate soldiers surround the Confederate Monument in Jackson Circle. In the middle of the monument, the solemn figure of a woman representing the South extends a laurel wreath toward her fallen sons. These ill feelings were slow to die but over time they did begin to fade. Many historians believe it was the national call to arms during the Spanish-American War that brought northerners and southerners together at last. In that war numerous Confederate veterans volunteered their services and joined their Northern brothers on the battlefield in the common defense of our nation. In June 1900, in this spirit of national reconciliation, the U.S. Congress authorized that a section of Arlington National Cemetery be set aside for the burial of Confederate dead.

    Western Campaign
    Confederate Uniforms
    (Under Construction)
    There were a variety of sources for the uniforms of the Confederates in the Western Campaign.
    Much (or most in some units)of what the troops wore was civilian cloths of a wide variety.
    Head gear consisted of slouch hats, sombreros and various military hats. A number of captured union supply depots yielded current issue and earlier military uniforms. Those who entered service directly from the military or who were veterans often brought their old uniforms with them. When surplus or captured US uniforms were used they would do such things as turn the belt buckle upside down and turn coat s inside out to cut the odds of being hit by friendly fire. In Petericolas diary there is mention of buying replacement cloths, particulary trousers made from heavy canvas, in El Paso. Such trousers would likely be cut for the older drop front as well as the more modern "French fly".
    Footwear could be not only brogans but boots and civilian shoes. On the frontier boots and shoes could take on the look of heavily built moccasins as well as what today is thought of as traditional footwear. Footwear could be built as a pair of right and left shoes and could be straight last, that is made to fit either foot. (The modern reenactor should bear in mind that while a straight last shoe is made to initially fit either foot they should be worn consistently on one foot or the other as with wearing they gradually conform to whichever foot its worn on. Switching back and forth is a good way to destroy both shoes and feet.)

    Southeast Missouri Region
    Prologue T he Civil War began at 4:30 a.m., on the 12th of April, 1861, when the first Confederate shell smashed into Fort Sumter. Within weeks militia were being organized in both the North and the South. The Bloody years of war that followed cost the lives of 600,000 men, two percent of the country's population. At the heart of the conflict, the issue of slavery divided states, nationalities, neighbors and even families. Missouri sat on the border between North and South. Most of Missouri's American-born settlers were from southern states and were southern in sentiment. Generally, they lived on farms, and many owned slaves. But the state also had a large foreign-born population, most of whom were strongly in favor of the Union. A convention was called to determine what course Missouri should take in the war, and the state took a position of armed neutrality. It was determined that neither North or South should invade the state and that Missouri would raise an army of its own for the purpose of protecting itself against the government of which it was a part and against its neighbor states that had seceded from the Union. The Missouri State Guards were organized. In Fact, the tide of feeling on both sides rose too high to allow the state to remain neutral. Armies, both North and South, entered its borders and thousands of its citizens enlisted, some fighting for the Union, some for the South. In no other part of Missouri was the loss of property and life more devastating than is Southeast Missouri. While only a few large-scale military operations between uniformed armies occurred, the complex mix of military units operating in the region made it a bloody battlefield for four long years. Northern sympathizers who were not in the regular Union army formed The Missouri Enrolled Militia which engaged in constant warfare with Missouri Confederate militia. Federal troops, intent on preventing a Confederate invasion from the south, moved back and forth through the region. Confederate armies, determined to gain a foothold in Missouri, marched through the Region from the South.

    According to official records, over 75,000 Kentuckians, including 23,000 African American volunteers, fought for the Union during the Civil War. This figure does not include the estimated 12,000 men who saw active service with Kentucky's state forces, nor the hundreds who belonged to irregular units such as self-styled "Home Guards" or "Independent Scouts."
    The exact number of Kentuckians who fought for the Confederacy may never be known. Historians estimate that between 25,000 and 40,000 Kentucky volunteers served in the Confederate army. The fact that service records for many of these individuals were either poorly kept, lost, or destroyed during the war presents a considerable challenge for researchers.

    The Battle of Glorieta
    Union Victory in the West
    by Don E. Alberts
    The high Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico seemed an unlikely site for a desperate Civil War battle, but on March 28, 1862, the army of Gen. Henry Hopkins Sibley, seeking to conquer the West for the Confederacy but dangerously short of supplies, fought a costly pitched battle at Glorieta Pass with Federal forces. The Rebels seemed to have won, and the Union units withdrew, but as fate would have it, Federal cavalry under Col. John Chivington unexpectedly found the Confederate supply train and destroyed it, leaving, the Southerners isolated and defenseless. Now available in paperback, The Battle of Glorieta: Union Victory in the West by Don E. Alberts offers a full, detailed, and accurate history of this blind, groping struggle in the smoke-filled Glorieta valley. The definitive work on the battle, it includes not only the Confederate organization and approach to the key battle, but also that of the Federal military units as they organized within New Mexico and Colorado Territories. It incorporates all the known Union participant accounts, including a number never before published. Based on his own research on the battlefield, Alberts also presents a thorough understanding of the deployment of troops and their actions. Alberts reveals, with rigorous supporting evidence, a whole new site for the Battle of Apache Canyon, miles from that previously described. From his field research and discovery of artifacts, he details the exact complement of both Confederate and Federal artillery. Finally, he marshals evidence to reach the startling, yet now inevitable, conclusion that the Battle of Glorieta was indeed a clear and significant Union victory.

    Following the bombardment of Fort Sumter in Charleston
    Harbor, South Carolina, on April 15, 1861, President
    Abraham Lincoln appealed for 75,000 volunteers to
    fight for the Union Cause. Pennsylvania, one of the
    states most supportive of the Lincoln administration,
    responded overwhelmingly with hundreds of patriotic
    men dedicated to preserving their country. A high
    number of these volunteers came from Union County.
    One company immediately left for Harrisburg, the State
    Capitol, in answer to the President's urgent summons;
    the second unit soon followed. This was the first of many calls the men of Union County answered to save the fragmented nation. When the North was shocked by defeat in the First Battle of Bull Run at Manassas, Virginia, on July 21, 1861, five Union County companies organized for military action. The Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps went into Federal service a few days later. The unsuccessful first attempt to capture Richmond in the spring and early summer prompted a call for additional troops on July 7, 1862. Three companies from Union
