About this product
- DescriptionThe U.S. Civil War divided the nation and more than 6.5 million men saw combat. Hispanics in the U.S. were also divided, be it by demographics, family, or political loyalties. Some Hispanics from California to Rhode Island served the Union cause, along with men from New Mexico and some from Texas. Most of the Southern states saw Hispanic men in its ranks. Others traveled across the Mason - Dixie line to serve their particular cause. There haven't been many books on the subject of Hispanics who served in the Civil war, this book is a compiled list of those men of Hispanic Ancestry who served, some died, others were wounded, yet all made a sacrifice and they should never be forgotten.
