John Malveaux of
In 2007, I visited the African American Civil War Museum & Memorial in Washington DC for the first time. The Wall of Honor lists the names of 209,145 United States Colored Troops drawn from the official records of the Bureau of United States Colored Troops at the National Archives, on 166 burnished stainless steel plaques arranged by regiment. One of the names on the Wall of Honor is John Malveaux. Visitors are encouraged to investigate if they are descendants of the USCT. When a match was determined by the county-St. Landry Parish, Louisiana of my ancestors and the enlistment location of the USCT named John Malveaux, the Museum presented me a Certificate as a descent. My oldest daughter, Mia Malveaux Manns, husband, and two grandsons have since visited the Museum.
