Commonwealth Museum Digital Exhibition
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.

This exhibit tells the story of their courage, strength, and sacrifice; a story of the quest for a nation free from slavery. [Click on the title.]
