John Malveaux: The Overlooked Black History of Memorial Day

John Malveaux of writes:

Memorial Day has a little known African American root. Please see .  Many are unaware that  over 200,000 African American  Union soldiers helped save our NATION. Please see photo of 3,000 school children who carried bouquets of flowers and sang "John Brown's Body" to honor captured Union soldiers in Charleston, South Carolina.  Members of the famed Union 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment and other African American Union Regiments were in attendance and performed double-time marches.
