1861
[font=Arial]July 18 - 'Negro troops' of the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment under Col. Robert G. Shaw assault fortified Rebels at Fort Wagner, South Carolina. Col. Shaw and half of the 600 men in the regiment are killed.[/font]
[font=Arial][/font]
[font=Arial]December 15/16 - Hood's Rebel Army of 23,000 is crushed at Nashville by 55,000 Federals including Negro troops under Gen. George H. Thomas. The Confederate Army of Tennessee ceases as an effective fighting force.[/font][font=Arial]http://www.civilwar.com/timehome.php[/font]
On July 17, 1863, at Honey Springs, Indian Territory, now Oklahoma, the 1st Kansas Colored fought with courage again. Union troops under General James Blunt ran into a strong Confederate force under General Douglas Cooper. After a two-hour bloody engagement, Cooper's soldiers retreated. The 1st Kansas, which had held the center of the Union line, advanced to within fifty paces of the Confederate line and exchanged fire for some twenty minutes until the Confederates broke and ran. General Blunt wrote after the battle, "I never saw such fighting as was done by the Negro regiment....The question that negroes will fight is settled]http://americancivilwar.com/colored/histofcoloredtroops.htmlhttp://www.civilwar.com/timehome.php

@ dgfred, going by your answer you made a good guess.


[/font][font=Arial]There, of course, were many other Generals and Colonels that had[/font][font=Verdana]African American Regiments under their command. I thought that[/font][font=Arial]Colonel Robert G. Shaw would have given it away as he was the Regimental Comnading Officer of one of the most famous Negro Regiments.[/font]

Hello :)

The lettering on the Green flag beneath the Harp was the phrase 'Erin go Bragh' is this what you are referring to?

Translation of this is disputed as to the exact meaning but its commonly translated as 'Ireland Forever' or words expressing a similar sentiment.

OK, Sticking with the Irish Brigade, the 3 original New York regiments were numbered 63rd, 69th and 88th.

For what reason were these numbers used?
