Despite evidence to the contrary, Northern revisionists in the U.S. deny that negroes were soldiers in Confederate ranks during the War of Northern Aggression, claiming they were only body servants, cooks, laborers, etc.
If that were true, then negroes in U. S. ranks during World War Two were not really soldiers either. This information concerning the mutiny of . S. negro "soldiers" comes from the New Zealand Herald at http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article....
"The 96th Battalion, like all other black units, was recruited and deployed under segregation policies applied across the US military until the late 1940s, and reinforced by rules governing the stationing of more than 7000 black troops in Australia.
"Few blacks were assigned combat roles. Most were in support duties, mainly catering and labour."
Would Northern revisionists say those negroes were not soldiers since they were caterers and labourers?? That's what they claim about negroes in Confederate service.
