Here’s Professor Roger Davidson of Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland giving a lecture on Emancipation and the United States Colored Troops in the Civil War. This is really an excellent class.
The video’s description reads, “History Professor Roger Davidson discusses Emancipation and U.S. Colored Troops during the Civil War. Professor Davidson explains how African Americans used the disorder caused by the Civil War to escape enslavement. He also details how former slaves offered their services to Union forces to help bring about the end of slavery. This fifty-minute class took place at Coppin State University in Baltimore.”
