Fire and Thunder: Massachusetts Blacks in the Civil War

Despite unequal pay and treatment Massachusetts African Americans played a large role during the Civil War, in the Army, Navy, and on the home-front. In various ways blacks in the Commonwealth stepped forward and helped change the course of history. This exhibit tells the story of their courage, strength, and sacrifice; a story of the quest for a nation free from slavery.
