RELIC books: The Louisiana Native Guards
The first RELIC program discussion is fast approaching! We're excited to see all of the participants next Thursday, September 13th to begin Battleground Louisiana: Civil War Events & Experiences. Here's another book we'll be consulting - The Louisiana Native Guards: The Black Military Experience during the Civil War. Author James Hollandsworth recounts the tale of black Union soldiers and the roles that they played in the political struggles of post-war Louisiana.
