You are invited to join our journey to document and celebrate the history of journey toward freedom.
The fierce and bloody battles to end chattel slavery throughout America, included the honorable service of United States Colored Troops from California.
The history of Juneteenth is incomplete and meaningless without honoring all service members who paid the ultimate sacrafice, especially soldiers of African ancestry.
Together, we will compile the historic data of California Colored Troops who await official recognition of their participation and essential contribution to our ongoing journey toward freedom.
