He will describe his research methods, how one record led to another, and how he found primary sources which substantiate his findings. Due to the political nature of the project, he found multiple primary sources for each soldier. He will display several artifacts that he used in his research. He will show a few scenes from his documentary "Colored Confederates and U.S. Colored Troops" and will have autographed copies of the DVD of this 75-minute film available for purchase. His talk coincides with the new Reconstruction Exhibit at the NC Museum of History.
