The confederate army of the American civil war was not all white! "Heroes by force" is a 225-page illustrations search directory of black confederate books listing 5,000 by slave names and state divisions, or militia and volunteers. This book is compiled with national archives, state archives, Confederate pension records, service records, Confederate land grants, slave narratives, books, old newspaper listings, muster rolls, and prisoner of war documents are all used to compile this collection of records.

Column Four- The Rank achieved by the person in the unit of record or job title. Column Five- Whether the person was a Slave or a Free Man of Color (FMC) and other miscellaneous information found.

Many of which leaned right-wing, neutral, and left-wing politically, release different versions of our history books to comply with the various priorities and educational standards of multiple states.
