Hello, and thanks for accepting me as a friend, I am a member of the PVT John Wesley Culp Memorial Camp In Gettysburg Pa but now reside in the Shenandoah Valley of Va.
I am happy that you take a stand for Confederate Heritage, I think that It’s a great thing you are doing, I am under the understanding that slaves were not considered for use as Combat troops until right before the end of the War Between the states? I know that Gen Patrick Cleburne suggested it long before the end of the war and was turned down by Jefferson Davis and the Confederate Government.
I was hoping that you may help steer me in the right direction on a couple of issues concerning Slavery and the Confederacy, thank you for your time.
