During the Civil War, roughly 179,000 Black soldiers enlisted in the U.S. Army, including over 10,000 recruited at Kentucky’s Camp Nelson. KHS hosts Dr. Holly Pinheiro, Jr., to discuss the experiences of Black veterans and their families, through intersections of race, class, gender, and region. By illuminating their lives, he argues the Civil War was “but one engagement in a longer war for racial justice.”
Dr. Holly Pinheiro, Jr., earned a Ph.D. in History from the University of Iowa. He is Assistant Professor of History at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina.
