The African American Civil War Museum

Over 1 million soldiers fought for the North during the Civil War, and 10%, over 200,000, were African Americans. The African American Civil War Museum at 1200 U Street, host many interesting artifacts, such as an authentic musket, bullets, uniforms, and many informative reproductions of photos and prints made during that period. According to Hari Jones, Assistant Director of the museum and a retired US Marine Captain, Abraham Lincoln was not an emancipator, but a facilitator, who, pressed for the need to weaken the South’s economy, offered slaves the opportunity to fight against their former enslavers. Dig, those soldiers were the emancipators! Let Hari tell you himself:
