A List of Ypsilanti’s Black Civil War Soldiers

The 55th Massachusetts Infantry, which included a number of Ypsilanti men, marching into Charleston, South Carolina singing "John Brown's Body" in Frebruary, 1865. Days later many other Ypsilanti men would join the 55th in Charleston when Michigan’s own 102nd USCT arrived along with the 54th Massachusetts, which also included half-dozen Ypsilanti men

The event depicted above was participated in by a number of Ypsilanti men, including those who had themselves escpaed from slavery years before.  It shows the 55th Massachusetts Infantry, which included at least five Ypsilantians, marching into Charleston, South Carolina while singing “John Brown’s Body” in February, 1865. Days after the liberation of Charleston, many other Ypsilanti men would join the 55th in Charleston when Michigan’s own 102nd USCT arrived along with the 54th Massachusetts, which also included half-dozen Ypsilanti men. Harpers Weekly.

Over seventy black men with Ypsilanti connections fought in the Civil War.
