"This thoroughly researched and well-written book recounts the previously little-known story of the first black Civil War regiment recruited in the North and the first to see combat. The First Kansas Colored Infantry suffered more battle deaths than any other black regiment and was the victim of one of the worst Confederate atrocities, the murder of the regiment's wounded and captured men after the battle of Poison Spring. This important study sheds new light on the Civil War in Missouri, Arkansas, and Indian Territory." - James M. McPherson, author of Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era
