Library Journal

Higginson was a Union colonel in charge of training black troops during the Civil War. He provides the officer's perspective on these recruits in a series of essays published in 1870. His observations range from camp life to a treatise on "The Negro as a Soldier." Though the book is not out of print, Dover's version is the most affordable edition currently available.
