“Black troops were regarded as second-class citizens,” said Hicks, “and often received lesser quality of equipment and clothing, and maybe only one doctor per regiment.” On April 21 at 11 a.m., Mütter Museum Director Robert Hicks will join Mayor Kenney, U.S. Rep. Dwight Evans (D., Pa.), and other politicians, historians and Civil War reenactors at the Philadelphia National Cemetery, to unveil an informational panel erected by the Veterans Administration that celebrates the achievements of the United States Colored Troops.

    Mutter exhibit recalls how the sacrifices of black Civil War troops advanced medicine - Philly
    Struck down by disease far more frequently than their white comrades, with nearly double the death rate, black soldiers who joined the U.S. Colored Troops would prove pivotal to medicine's understanding of the greatest public health crisis in the young nation's history.
