Historical Note
An estimated ten thousand slaves were bought and became soldiers in the period of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, and the survivors became free men. It was always difficult to find officers and very few commissions were sold. A number - how many is unknown for lack of records - of regular sergeants were given regimental commissions and rose to senior rank.
