What it was like for black soldiers who were captured or surrendered to Confederate troops

This story is part of The Post-Standard's 2012 observance of Black History Month, which coincides with the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. The Post-Standard observes the month with accounts related to Central New York African-Americans who lived in the Civil War era, especially those who risked their lives as abolitionists and those who fought for the Union.

(AND The Post Standard did a mighty fine job with it)
