U. S. Colored Troops- Warren County

The following is a listing of some of the soldiers who were born in Warren County and enlisted to serve in what was known as the United States Colored Troops during the Civil War.  Most of these men were apparently living in other States when they enlisted, and these records can be helpful to those researchers looking for what may have happened to some of their ancestors.  There is additional information on the U.S. Colored Troops formed in North Carolina and for those wishing further Regimental & Battle History, a great website can be visited, The Civil War Archive.
