The "Three Centuries Of African American Soldiers" Exhibit In Trenton, New Jersey On February 28, 2016

Earlier today, in honor of Black History Month, the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton, New Jersey hosted the annual "Three Centuries Of African American Soldiers" exhibit. My good friends representing the U.S.C.T. (United States Colored Troops) were present at the Civil War table along with historians portraying Soldiers of other conflicts from the 1700s, 1800s and 1900s.  I spoke with a number of people about teaming up with them to put together an event.  I certainly have the artifacts, documents and records.  It would definitely be amazing.

Here are the photographs ...

It was a bit of a surprise seeing the German artifacts at this event ... war souvenirs I assume:
