Contributor Richard Phillips continues to create resources for military information in Onslow County. His most recent work is the site African American Soldiers & Sailors.
The purpose of the site is to share information about African Americans who joined the Army & Navy during the Civil War. Richard has several sections to the site:
- information about a monument in Hertford in memory of these soldiers
- scholarly articles on the topic
- information on battles
- links to the wonderful graphs he’s created documenting slaveholders in the county; he’s also contributed the graphs to this site
- unit rosters
This link has been added to both the African-American page and the Military page on the site. As a blog-powered site you have the ability to get the new posts sent directly to your feed reader via the RSS feed, or you can regularly visit. Spend some time exploring it!
