9th Louisiana African Descent at Milliken's Bend

Found an account online from a Captain M.M. Miller of the 9th Louisiana African Descent on the Battle of Milliken's Bend. Miller's letter to his aunt about Milliken's Bend is part of Bennie J. McRae website titled, "Freedom Fighters: United States Colored Troops in the Civil War."

In addition to the letter from Miller of the 9th Louisiana African Descent, McRae wrote up a nice piece on the role of black soldiers at Milliken's Bend.
