Roll of Honor: 102nd United States Colored Troops

Map of the area in which the 102nd served off of South Carolina during the Civil War. (Library of Congress)

Over one hundred and fifty men who served with the 102nd United States Colored Troops from December, 1863 to October, 1865 never returned. The vast majority of them were felled by disease, the worst months being after their arrival in the Sea Island in the summer of 1864. With many, all the information we have is the word “died” and a date. About a dozen were killed or missing in action or later died of their wounds from combat. One man drowned and two were shot while “running the guards” near their camp. The majority of wounded come from the action at Deveaux Neck, South Carolina in December, 1864.  For more on those who served in the 102 see Volume 46 of the Record of Service of Michigan Volunteers in the Civil War. A list of all those men from Ypsilanti who served in the 102nd USCT as well as the 54th and 55th Massachusetts is also available on this site.
