How Blacks Were Treated by the Lincoln’s Union?

Lets take a very short look at the O.R. ( Federal Official Records) to see how the Yankees treated the poor free blacks and slaves in the South:

Major General John A. Dix, Department of Virginia, Seventh Army Corps, Fort Monroe on November 26th, 1862, communicated to Brigadier General Michael Corcoran, commanding at New Port News, ( Virginia) "A complaint has been made to me, that the colored people who are out to Craney Island have been forced to remain all night on the wharf without shelter and without food; that one has died and that others are suffering with disease, and that your men have turned them out of their houses, which they have built themselves, and have robbed some of them of their money and personal effects."

General Innis N. Palmer, New Bern, on September 1, 1864, reported to General B.F.Butler,Fort Monroe.

The Negroes

[on Roanoke Island] will not go [ to be laborers at Fort Monroe ] voluntarily, so I am obliged to force them. I have sent seventy-one and will send this afternoon about 150. I expect to get a large lot tomorrow…The matter of collecting the Colored men for labors has been one of some difficulty, but I hope to send up a respectable force…They will not go willingly….They must be forced to go, and I propose to…send them up. I am aware that this may be considered a harsh measure,….but we must not stop at trifles. Federal Official Records ( O.R.) Volume XLII, pt. II 654-654

In South Carolina, Brigadier General Rufus Saxton, Military Governor, US Forces at Beaufort, on December 30th, 1864, reported to Secretary of War Stanton:

I….report my doings for the current year….The recruiting [ into the US Army of former slaves], went on slowly when, the major-general commanding [ General (John G.) Foster], ordered an indiscriminate conscription of every able bodied colored man in the department…The order spread universal confusion and terror. The Negroes fled to the woods and swamps….They were hunted to their hiding places….Men have been seized and forced to enlist who had large families of young children dependent upon them for support.
Three boys, one only fourteen years of age, were seized in a field where they were at work and sent to a regiment in a distant part of the department, without the knowledge or consent of their parents. A man on his way to enlist as a volunteer was stopped by a recruiting party. He told them where he was going and was passing on, when he was again ordered to halt. He did not stop and was shot dead, and was left where he fell…the soldiers desired to bring him in to get the bounty offered for bringing in recruits….
I found the prejudice of color and race here in full force, and the general feelings of the army of occupation was unfriendly to the blacks. It was manifested in various forms of personal insult and abuse, in depredations on their plantation, stealing and destroying their crops and domestic animals and robbing them of their money.
The women were held as the legitimate prey of lust….Licentiousness was widespread….The influence of too many [ officers and soldiers] was demoralizing to the Negro, and has greatly hindered the efforts of their improvement and elevation. There was a general disposition among the soldiers and civilian speculators here to defraud the Negro’s in their private traffic, to take the commodities, which they offered for sale by force, or to pay for them in worthless money.

President Lincoln on February 7 wrote to Lieutenant Colonel John Glenn 120th Colored Infantry, commanding post at Henderson Kentucky, seventy-five miles north east of Paducah, "Complaint is made to me that you are forcing Negroes into the military service, and even torturing them–riding them on rails, and the like—to extort their consent"

(Sherman knows Grant and he, will go down in history as war criminals)
On August 4, 1863, W.T.Sherman in Camp on Big Black River, Mississippi, wrote to Grant at Vicksburg, "the Amount of burning, stealing and plundering done by our army makes me ashamed of it. I would rather quit the service if I could, because I fear that we are drifting to the worst sort of vandalism….You and I and every commander must go through the war, justly charged with crimes at which we blush."
