Black people might discover that Black free men fought gallantly as officers and gentlemen in the Confederate army. Marie Claire DeCuir's most unusual precise memory of an excellent story teller unfolds the lives of immediate and extended family members as racially mixed slave owners of vast and wealth producing plantations.
