U.S. Civil War - Surprising Soldiers - Extra History

Historians have been learning that the US civil war armies were a lot more diverse than previously accounted for--partly because many soldiers who hailed from other countries and nations used adopted names. Chinese, Hawaiian, Hispanic, and Cherokee soldiers all participated on both sides of the US civil war--suffering even more conflict in some cases.

  • Researchers are beginning to learn that the makeup of the Union and Confederate armies in the US Civil War was a lot more nuanced and diverse than we had previously known. Here is an episode on the accounts of some of those surprising soldiers! bit.ly/EHPatreon

  • I like how this account uses monograms to identify individuals, like the "G" and "L" on Grant and Lee respectively.

  • We need a series on the fall of the Soviet Union. You have all kinds of political chicanery (including that on the part of Americans), a war (Afghanistan) and a coup attempt. Also I need to see a cartoon version of Gorbachev.

  • Hispanics and Native Americans once served (willingly??????) in the confederacy? Bet you'll never see that written in future high school history books. I'm sure many will gladly talk about how diverse the Union was but then see how awkward it would be for some to talk about the other side. When we look at the confederacy, I bet none of us here on this comment section expected to see Hispanics, Asians, let alone Native Americans proudly waving the Confederate flag.

  • It sucked to be a person of color back then. Join one side, and if you lose you get broken treaties. Join another side, and if you win, treaties get brok an eventually. Do nothing, still broken treaties. So many lies, even until nowadays.

  • Away down South in the land of traitors, Rattlesnakes and alligators, Right away, come away, right away, come away. Where cotton's king and men are chattels, Union boys will win the battles, Right away, come away, right away, come away. CHORUS: Then we'll all go down to Dixie, Away, away, Each Dixie boy must understand That he must mind his Uncle Sam, Away, away, And we'll all go down to Dixie. Away, away, And we'll all go down to Dixie. I wish I was in Baltimore, I'd make Secession traitors roar, Right away, come away, right away, come away. We'll put the traitors all to rout. I'll bet my boots we'll whip them out, Right away, come away, right away, come away. CHORUS: Then they'll wish they were in Dixie, Away, away, Each Dixie boy must understand That he must mind his Uncle Sam, Away, away, And we'll all go down to Dixie. Away, away, And we'll all go down to Dixie. Oh, may our Stars and Stripes still wave Forever o'er the free and brave, Right away, come away, right away, come away. And let our motto ever be -- "For Union and for Liberty!" Right away, come away, right away, come away. CHORUS: Then they'll wish they were in Dixie, Away, away, Each Dixie boy must understand That he must mind his Uncle Sam, Away, away, And we'll all go down to Dixie. Away, away, And we'll all go down to Dixie. - UNION DIXIE lyrics I'm a Union boy son. Proud to be an American Patriot.
