A Question and a Reminder

First the question: Can anyone out there point me to research material about the Redshirts? They were active after the Civil War, primarily in Mississippi, South Carolina, and North Carolina. During a period when the Klan wasn’t very active. They performed all the functions of the Klan in partnership with southern Democrats. I was amazed I had never heard of them and am working on a story.

The reminder is to sign up to receive my stories so you can hear about the parts of history rarely highlighted. You might also check out my Black History Month 365 group. Please join if you like what you see. Writers are welcome to add contributions.

Thank you,
