"The man behind the movement is Maurice Barboza, a resident of Virginia who grew up in Plainville. He has worked as a public relations and communications consultant but has devoted much of his time and energy in the past 30 years to get the monument built.

Barboza said his goal in reaching out to cities and towns is to build awareness for his project. In 2008, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution published "Forgotten Patriots," which listed 5,000 black soldiers and 1,600 Indian soldiers who served in the war, some from Connecticut. Barboza said the research gives the state special insight into its history."

They should be honored.

They served long before the Civil War, and the Poor White Trash that fought in it, thinking they were better than Blacks who gave all, including their lives in the American Revolution!

Sadly, some bigots will not acknowledge this fact of life.

But, bigots being Poor White Trash, what else can you expect?

I think descendants of blacks who fought for the Confederacy should be issued these new Confederate License plates that are GOING to BE issued throughout the South for free.

As recompense,
... for their sacrifices....
