The call to arms from impassioned abolitionist Frederick Douglass echoed the overwhelming sentiments of nearly 190,000 colored troops that joined the Union cause for the promise of freedom. David Koch, Assistant Professor of History at Housatonic Community College and David J. Naumec, Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center, will discuss the colored troops before and after the Proclamation.
