The Black Confederate or Soldier

Images and Text
By Tony Dorty

Enter the body servant or the personal attendant to the Soldier or the conqueror.

In the beginning this profession required that the individual so disposed, cared for the weapons and arms of the combatant who defeated or enslaved him. It would not be long before this particular practice caught on with the higher echelons of civilian society, were it would become one of the "pillars" or strengths of slavery. A clearly visible sign to all, of the complete power one human being executed over another.

Neo-confederates would turn the Slave who was a Body Servant into a soldier and multiply him by thousands.
