Description

I have always been a fan of history, especially military history. However, I have found that the military history of African Americans in the defense of America has had very little written about it, and in some cases, their deeds and accomplishment were completely omitted. This book is a brief look at some of their accomplishments. Americans of every race should remember and take pride in the courage of Crispus Attucks at the Boston Massacre, the bravery of Peter Salem at the Battle of Bunker Hill, the unselfish sacrifices of John R. Fox on December 26, 1944, at the Italian village of Sommocolonia, and the heroic deed of Dorie Miller aboard the USS West Virginia on December 7, 1941, during the attack on Pearl Harbor. When we remember these acts of courage, devotion to duty, and paying the ultimate sacrifice, we realize that the African American's military contributions goes far beyond digging ditches and serving meals aboard ships. It is my hope that the readers of this book will be encouraged to explore more information on America's history. America's history includes all Americans.
