New York History: Rochester to Honor African American Civil War Sold...: "Nazareth College is hosting the Rochester-Monroe County Freedom Trail Commission's seventh annual tribute to the nearly 200,000 men of color..."
The Owasco Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution recently honored Dr. Anderson with their Local Media Award; NYS has recommended that the national organization consider honoring him as well. His work to record and honor the black soldiers and white officers of the US Colored Troops has been extensive. Scipio had at least two men who served as officers in the USCT - Daniel Perrine Van Liew and Edwin Fell. James Philips of the Hamlet of Sherwood in Scipio served as a soldier in the USCT. I'm pleased to see Dr. Anderson's work continue.
