Nell’s Colored American Patriots

Colored American Patriots   We understand that Mr. William C. Nell is preparing for press a second edition (revised and enlarged) of his valuable historical work, entitled “Colored American Patriots”, in which their services in the present struggle to put down the Slaveholders’ Rebellion will be duly chronicled.   In the Revolutionary  war of 1776, and the war of 1812-1816, none exhibited more heroism and devotion the cause of their country themselves…..It deserves a place in every place in every library, and in every family.
