Olustee Diary: William Woodlin, 8th USCT
Anyone who has done research on United States Colored Troops
will tell you that finding an original letter or diary from an African American
Union soldier is akin to the discovery of Noah’s Ark. Primary documents from
USCTs are scarce, which makes the diary...

Introduction
I am an adjunct professor of Civil War History at Germanna Community College. I received my M.A. in Military History from Norwich University in 2009. Since then I have sought to raise awareness of African American military participation in the Civil War by writing about different aspects of their service on my award-winning weblog, Freedom by the Sword: A Historian's Journey Through the American Civil War Era (formerly The Sable Arm: A Blog Dedicated to the United States Colored Troops of the Civil War Era). I am the author of the book The Battle of New Market Heights: Freedom Will Be Theirs By The Sword (The History Press, 2011) which is the only book-length study of the battle yet published.
Bragging rights
I have a gorgeous wife and two kids, served in the US Air Force, was an extra in Spielberg's Lincoln, am a member of the re-created 23rd USCT, helped Don Troiani on his latest painting, and am working on my second book about the First Battle of Deep Bottom.
