Tribute to the Forgotten Soldiers 2009 Veterans Day
by Arthur David Samuels Sr
This past Veterans day, November 10, 2009, as for past 25th years, a growing group of veterans, historians, students and other citizens have meet, in Historic Elmwood Cemetery to honor the memory of Michigan's 102nd Regiment United States Colored Troops. The Veterans Day Ceremonies were inspired by local resident, Beulah Hamilton. It was during her visits to her husband's grave that Mrs. Hamilton noted that there was never an American flag flying over the Civil War veterans' gravesite. As a lifelong resident of Michigan I was totally unaware of the existence or contributions of the 102nd Regiment United States Colored Troops. This book is dedicated to their memory.
