(pst), as Host Anita Wills pays homage to the United States Colored
Troops. Virginia's Governor McConnell has made April Confederate
History Month, and managed to avoid any mention of slavery. However one
of the last losing Battles of the Civil War was won by Soldiers from
the United States Colored Troops. It was the Battle of New Market
Heights. The Colored Troops displayed their worth at that Battle which
was also called the Battle of Chaffin's Farm, near Richmond on
September 29, 1864.
Fourteen men, including Christian Fleetwood,
who later became an active community leader in Washington, D.C. were
presented the Medal of Honor for valor at New Market Heights. Several
were awarded to men who took charge of their units after all white
commanders had fallen. Soldiers of distinction were also given the Army
of the James or "Butler" medal, designated by champion of the black
troops, Gen. Benjamin Butler and the only medal created solely for the
United States Colored Troops. A celebration should include all of the
players, including a depiction of the actual battle where the soldiers
from the United States Colored Troops won the day. It was a good day
for slaves and a wonderful day for America. The Battle of New Market
Heights will be the topic of the show tonight..This week, Radio
Talk Show Host, Anita Wills will shed light on the United States
Colored Troops from Lancaster and Chester County Pennsylvania. They
were free blacks, and escaped slaves who were just over the line from
slave states like Virginia and Maryland. When the call came these men
answered knowing that they had a lot to lose. Were the south to win the
war, there was not doubt that slavery would spread throughout America.
The Underground Railroad ran throughout communities in Southeastern
Pennsylvania. The United States Colored Troops (USCT) came to the
forefront with the movie Glory, about the 54th Massachusetts. Their
mission was the exact opposite of the Confederates who were fighting to
maintain slavery. Most of the soldiers from the north did not receive
pay, nor land. You will be amazed at the efforts of the brave men of
the United States Colored Troops.Tune In and Listen Up!For More show information:Anita Talks Genealogy, http://blogtalkradio.com/Anita -WillsHost
