Best Answer

Yes, blacks were accepted into the Union army and fought with distinction. A man who had been drafted could get out of it by hiring a substitute. He had to find someone willing to take his place and pay him a substantial bonus to enlist. I seem to remember that the bonus was $100.00 but I could be wrong. Michael Montagne
