This microfilm publication reproduces seven volumes (eight bound parts) of records compiled for publication by the Colored Troops Division of the Adjutant General's Office. This compilation was entitled: 'The Negro in the military service of the United States: a compilation of official records, state papers, historical extracts, etc., relating to his military status and service, from the date of his introduction into the British North American Colonies,' and consists primarily of documents copied from published and unpublished primary sources. In addition there are a few original documents and extracts of material from secondary sources that are used to cover periods of history for which primary sources were not readily available.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
