U.S. COLORED TROOPS: WINGFIELD Union Soldiers of the Civil War

Company B 103 Regiment - Unidentified Civil War UNION Soldier

Earlier tonight Bernita ALLEN (Air Force SME) of AAGSAR (African American Genealogy and Slave Ancestry Research) shared an awesome site to research your Civil War Ancestors, the National Park Service: Soldiers and Sailors Database. I’ve already identified 8 WINGFIELD Civil War Soldiers I need to research further to determine if a family connection exists!

Albeit connected by SURNAME, blood and/or plight, I honor these WINGFIELD men of service. I’ll keep you posted on connections too! AMAZING!:)

    • Thanks Denise! My middle son was sitting next to me when I posted & they look so much alike it scared me! I guess that’s why I was drawn to his face — it was familiar!:)

  1. This is so incredible. You gave a honor, recognition and a voice to your military ancestors. Your picture picture says it all. They served with pride and honor. Thank you for your family’s sacrifice to our country.

    • And you provided the source B, so they’re working you too! I guess my Ancestors say, enough — it’s time to preserve our history! I’m relieved for them & excited about all the schooling I’m receiving in the process! Thank you for helping me!:)

  2. These pictures are so beautiful. I’ve been doing some unrelated research for a book and I am so drawn to these beautiful images and their meaning. God bless!
