At least 5,000 African-Americans, many from North Carolina, served on the American side. Some were body servants and laborers, but most served as front line troops, including non-commissioned officers. Although slavery was still legal, there was no segregation in the military – the troops served side-by-side in the same units and suffered the same dangers and hardships.
