The Black Regularsis a fine examination of a military experience shaped and defined by prejudice and discrimination. . . . [T]his is the best single volume on the lives of black soldiers in the frontier Army."" - Frank N. Schubert, in Army History

""Within the black regiments were congregated a few saints and a few sinners, but the vast majority were simply men who chose the soldier's profession and performed their duties remarkably well. Their stories are now given new voice in this exceptionally fine synthesis that complements all previous book-length studies of the topic."" - Michael L. Tate, in the Journal of Southern History

""The beauty of this study is that it overturns a number of long-held assumptions regarding the black regiments of the late nineteenth century. . . . [The book] fill[s] a most signifucant gap in the scholarly literature of the black regulars in the West."" - John H. Monnett, in Pacific Historical Review
