I would ask you to site a source for that fact. I do not dispute it
outright, but the information I have states that nearly twice that many
blacks tried to volunteer for service with the confederacy, but were turned
down outright by the confederate governments. If my information is
incorrect, I am indeed interested in correcting it.
Teamsters, cooks, sutlers, etc. In today's Army these roles are filled by soldiers. In the Civil War, they were independent contractors, or, being blacks in the South, contractees (slaves).
Serious consideration of arming blacks in exchange for freedom and citizenship came long after Stonewall was dead.
