Welcome

Many historians would have you believe that all Blacks hated the Confederacy and what it stood for. This is completely untrue, according to records. So, the questions needs to be asked why then have we not heard of these soldiers in history books? I believe the answer is easy,  history books have been  written by people who are either ignorant of the situation or by someone bent on covering up the true history of the past. Let me remind you of Dr. Haynes powerful statement, “When you eliminate the black Confederate Soldier, you've eliminated the history of the South.”

After the war, Anthony lived at 79 Bridge St. in St. Augustine with his wife Sedra and their children Lizzie, Frank, Sara, Annie, Necal, and Sadie. Anthony T.
