By the end of the civil War African American volunteers made up nearly what percentage of the Union army?
I think about 200,000.There maybe more.
They fought with great courage to save the union and end slavery forever. .
By mid -1862 the Union Army was dealing with declining whitevolunteers the escalating former slave numbers and the growingpersonnel needs of the Army, which pressured the Gove…rnment tooverturn an imposed ban on black enlisted men stemming from a 1792federal law prohibiting the arming of Negroes for service. Oncethis ban was lifted black soldiers served gallantly for the Unionin predominantly supporting roles that sustain an army in the formof Carpenters, chaplains, guards, laborers, steamboat pilots,surgeon and teamsters. Black women also served, although they couldnot enlist, in the Army as nurses, spies and scouts. The mostfamous of which was Harriet Tubman.
African Americans fought both on the front lines as soldiers andbehind the scenes as labor workers. Former slaves played animportant role in the North's victory.
because the slaves brought renewed intensity
Because it gvw them more soldiers to fight with the north
They thought that maybe they could free all slaves and try and be accepted by the rest of the U.S. but it didn't work and they had only chose them to fight because they had l…ess soldiers and needed more people desperately

African Americans could not join until after the Emancipation Proclamation..
It is unlikely that any African citizens served in the union army. You may wish to research black Americans and their substantial contributions.
