The testimony of one informant on the participation of Maryland Blacks in the Civil War is evaluated for its historicity. Comparison with documentary sources reveals a number of correspondences, and the emphasis in passages selected by the informant expose meaningful historical criteria indicating pride in Black accomplishments and the creative, adaptive decisions of Blacks to rapidly changing conditions.
