bigotry. next question?
The Union allowed blacks to serve in the army. The Confederates did not allow slaves to fight in combat so they only used blacks for non-combat issues such as servants.
yes they did
Even though the US Army wanted blacks to fill the ranks of their army, many commanders did not trust them to fight. So many were used for manual labor; transportation, construction and hard labor. Also blacks were accepted into the army but very few were allowed to serve as Sergeants and none were allowed to be an Officer.
Women were not allowed to serve as members of the Roman Legions.
Anyone who volunteers to help the US army is allowed to, though not everyone has to.
In most of the branches of the military they did service jobs because they were not allowed to fight in combat. In the Army they were eventually allowed to serve as airmen, tank drivers/bombers, and in the infantry. Eleanor Roosevelt was responsible for getting the blacks in combat in the Army. Service jobs were anything that was not fighting. The majority of them served in the quartermaster corp and on cleaning crews.
They WERE alowed to fight, thats why the Confederates were so out-numbered.
Your "facts" are in error.Between 65,000 and 100,000 blacks served in the Confederate Army. Let me restate that: as many as 100,000 blacks served in the Army of the South. These men were cooks, musicians, and soldiers.Of the 179,000 blacks who served in all aspects of the Union Army and 19,000 who served in the Navy, 40,000 died in service.Where the majority of Northern blacks volunteered, many of the Southern blacks were pressed into service, although quite a few volunteered to serve in the Confederate cause.
No. The 'social circumstances' were negative. At the beginning, the troops did not want to serve alongside blacks. Later they saw how the blacks might take some of the fatigue-duties off their shoulders. Then they saw that the blacks could help to fill up the rifle-ranks, enabling whites to earn quicker promotion. By the end of the war, quite a few blacks had earned credibility as front-line soldiers, some of them with distinction.
Actually, the South brought their black slaves with them to fight in the war. So it is false that they weren't allowed to fight.
Congress allowed African-Americans to serve in the Union Army.
Because back then the racist law was not enrolled then
The fact that they were not allowed to serve as officers.
No, blacks were allowed to fight in the war. Remember, the Union was against slavery. There were some all African American regiments and some mixed regiments. The Confederate Army even had black soldiers.
ww1 he serve the German army
Any freeborn male who was at least 18 years old was admitted to the Roman army. He had to be in reasonably good health, both physical and mental.
The Emancipation Proclamation also announced Lincoln's decision to use black troops in the Union Army, though many whites believed that blacks would make poor soldiers. The reason blacks joined the Union Army, was to fight for the freedom of those in the South that were still slaves. Also, these men felt an obligation to serve their new country, in which they would eventually be recognized as legal citizens.
No, Sandra Day O'Connor did not serve in the Army.
No, women were not allowed in the army.
what age do you have to be to serve in the army
I think the most of the people that serve the army are called soldiers.
They were averse to paying taxes, and had to serve in their army when called out.
