At The Fort: A Most Diverse Army

This Saturday, February 29th, Ranger Barry presents ‘A Most Diverse Army’.

The program explores the challenges and prejudices that African Americans faced in becoming a part of the Union Army during the Civil War. Participants will discuss the pros and cons of joining the Union Army and the First Kansas Colored.

One of the goals of the program is to discuss the issues and biases present at the time and those that pervade society today while maintaining respect for all persons involved.
