Onslow County African-Americans in the Union Navy
I received an email last week from Richard Phillips who authors a blog about African-American soldiers and sailors from Onslow County, which of course is my home county and where I currently live. He has found four brothers, the Everetts, who all joined the Union Navy. Follow this link to his blog, African American Soldiers and Sailors. There are a number of posts on the Everett brothers and a lot of great images, including numerous scanned documents. Excellent work, Mr. Phillips!
