"This is an age of wonders, and not the least among them is the celebration of the Fourth of July at Camp Nelson, Kentucky, by the colored people. To see so many thousands, who a year ago were slaves, congregate in the heart of a slave State and celebrate the day sacred to the cause of freedom, 'with none to molest or make afraid,'  was a grand spectacle. It was the first time we have ever been permitted to celebrate the Nation's Day." Sergeant William A. Warfield, 119th United States Colored Infantry Regiment (1864).
