Question of the Week Feb. 4-10

With our new site deployment coming on a Monday, we decided to push our “Question of the Week” to Tuesday.

February is Black History Month. Who is your favorite African-American to study from the Civil War era? What did he or she do?

    Frederick Douglass. Brilliant writer and orator whose great mind swept away President Lincoln’s lingering feelings that African-Americans were inferior intellectually to whites.

    P.S. Great to have ECW back online.

  2. Doug Pauly says:

    Always have to go with Harriet Tubman. What a resume’, to wildly understate things!

  3. Lee Elder says:

    I’m going to cheat and say the common soldier in the African American regiments. The contributions of those regiments are important for us to study and understand.
