Black Civil War Soldiers Added to Monument

The names of 54 African-Americans from Maury County, Tennessee who fought and died in the Civil War were added to a county war memorial. The names of the soldiers were researched and uncovered by the African American Heritage Society of Maury County. All were members of the U.S. Colored Troops regiments who fought with the Union Army. (Photo: Courtesy of National Archives and Records Administration)
