“Blacks in Blue”

  • Begins at 2pm and ends at 3pm

    One of the often forgotten heroes of the Civil War is the African American soldier. Many of those who fought in Missouri for the Union were former slaves. The first African American unit to engage in combat was the First Kansas Colored Volunteer Infantry Regiment, whose men “fought like tigers” at the Battle of Island Mound, near Butler, Missouri. This presentation will share the stories of selected African Americans who fought in Missouri at Island Mound and Westport.
    Joe Louis Mattox is an independent scholar at the Bruce R. Watkins Cultural Heritage Center and State Museum in Kansas City, where he serves as the volunteer resident historian. A retired public housing official and freelance writer specializing in topics of interest to African Americans, he serves on the board of the directors of the Historic Kansas City Foundation and is also a historian for the Midwest Afro-American Genealogical Interest Coalition, a volunteer at the Battle of Westport Visitor Center and Museum, and is honored to be a “Living Historian.”
