It was in 2010 that researchers verified the service of around 140 black soldiers from the area who fought in the Civil War but were omitted from the tablets. The commission overseeing the monument said it will honor these men, mostly like by inscribing their names on the tablets, and others they uncover through additional research.

“It is important to honor their service to their community and country,” Ted Prasse, president of the commission, told theGrio.”Our mandate is to pay tribute to all those who fought in the Civil War; the fact that they’re African-American is irrelevant.”

“By the end of the Civil War, roughly 179,000 black men (10 percent of the Union Army) served as soldiers in the U.S. Army and another 19,000 served in the Navy. Nearly 40,000 black soldiers died over the course of the war-30,000 of infection or disease,” according to National Archives.
