Abstract:

The 1st South Carolina Volunteers, later the 33rd United States Colored Troops, were the first black unit of the Civil War. Preceding the famous 54th Massachusetts-seen in the film Glory-by one year, these South Carolina slaves turned soldiers were noted for their courage, discipline, and pride, continuing to serve the Union cause even while temporarily disbanded. They fought for years with little or no pay, poor equipment, and constant pressure and abuse from both North and South. This brief history is told mostly through the letters and journals of their commanding officer Lt. Col. Charles T. Trowbridge. Bennie J. McRae Jr. runs Lest We Forget, an online resource specializing in the service of blacks in the U.S. military. Curtis M. Miller is a reporter and anchor at WIBC radio in Indianapolis. Cheryl Trowbridge-Miller, a descendent of Lieutenant Colonel Trowbridge, is an employee of Fiserv Item Processing and a genealogist specialising in researching slave ancestors of black families.
