While doing some browsing on the Library of Congress website the other day I ran across some neat photographs of United States Colored Troops (USCT) flags. The images painted on the flags are very striking and I only wish these photographs had been taken in color. The mottoes on the flags tell strong stories of what these men were fighting for.
One Cause, One Country: 45th USCT
We Will Prove Ourselves Men: 27th USCT
Strike for God and [Country?]: 25th USCT
