A lost piece of Civil War history has been found and highlights the existence of a forgotten U.S. Colored Troop (USCT) based in NC - 135th USCT. The 135th USCT was enlisted March 27, 1865 into the army of General William T. Sherman and was comprised of men from Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.

Research at the National Archives revealed information about the men and also found were their writings describing experiences in the Army, wives and children. This led to the discovery of their descendants, people who didn't know they had relatives who were members of the 135th USCT.

To learn more, attend the Living History weekend. A pop up museum, exhibits, guest speakers, period music and encampment will be free to the public. A special banquet will be held and tickets can be purchased ahead of time.
