Feature Review

African Canadians in Union Blue
Volunteering for the Cause in the Civil War

By Richard M. Reid

African Canadians in Union Blue

"Richard M. Reid's engaging and well-researched examination of the nearly 2,500 African Canadians who served in the Union Army is a must-read for anyone interested in the black experience during the American Civil War... thanks to Reid's fascinating and important study, the sacrifice, courage, and determination of these African Canadians can now find their proper place in the history of the American Civil War."

- Kevin D. Greene, University of Southern Mississippi, Journal of Military History
