Description
A black and white medium shot of African-American soldiers lined up on the battlefield in full uniform with their rifles. Their campground is visible in the background.
The four black regiments were among the first units deployed to Cuba. Due to their crucial role in the war, African-American troops expected racist attitudes to be erased; however, black soldiers still faced widespread discrimination when they returned home.
