TWO FAMOUS NEGRO SOLDIERS IN THE CONFEDERACY

By Andre Austin

Many black slaves were duped into serving in the Confederate Army. They were promised freedom if they helped their Masters fight the Union for their economic benefit. Some were forced into and many served because they were sheerly loyal to their master who feed and clothed them and brainwashed under the illusion of white Supremacy.

Two famous black Confederate Soldiers were Preston Roberts and John Tinsley:

1. Preston Roberts was Quartermaster for the infamous Nathan B. Forrest, (brainchild of the KKK and first Wizard). 75 Negro cooks served under Roberts who at times served as a spy for the Confederacy. Roberts received the highest Confederate decoration which was called the Cross of Honor. How many black students know this fact???

2. John Tinsley a telegraph engineer for the Confederate Army. His job responsibilities were to repair broken down poles and wires for the Southern Telegraph system.

White supremacy is not an illusion. It is a fact and we must strive to dismantle it..

Yes, that would definitely be an illusion.. One that has been perpetuated for quite some time and has been somewhat effective...Thanks for the clarification...

I forgot to add this important fact:
Notes.

“In 1860 there were 487,000 free Negroes in the United States some of whom owned slaves. C.D. Wilson estimates that there were 6,230 Negro slave-holders. The tax returns of Charleston, S.C., for 1860 showed 132 Negro slave-holders with 390 slaves. The Negro slave-holders, like the white ones, fought to keep their chattels in the Civil War”.( 100 Amazing Facts about the Negro By J.A. Rogers p.11)
