US Colored Troops to be Honored in Western Kentucky

See this link about a historical marker to be unveiled on October 22.

A tip o' the hat to Jimmy Price  for "tweeting" this information earlier tonight

This unit formed in Paducah in late 1864 and spent the remainder of the war in the region. It mustered out of service in February 1866.

Here is a link that includes a roster of the soldiers that were part of this unit.
