U.S.C.T. AND COMMISSIONED OFFICERS OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN DESCENT

As you may know there were at least 120 commissioned officers in the Union Army who were African-Americans. The Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, founded in 1865, had as its original members the Commissioned Officers of the Union Army, Navy and Marine Corps. Today MOLLUS is composed of the descendants, either directly from any commissioned serving officer or through the brother or sister of such officer. By this time given the number of generations there are upwards of 75 to 100,000 descendants of these officers. We are desirous that the service and contribution of African-American Commissioned Officers be particularly recognized beyond what is simply recorded in the regimental and general military histories, and ask that descendants of such officers contact us if they are interested in honoring their ancestors service by becoming members of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion. Attached is a list of the known African-American Commissioned Officers together with their rank and unit. There may be some officers who have been over looked and we would be happy to have their descendants join us upon presentation of evidence of service Assistance will be given to any applicant needing help proving their descent from the ancestor who served.
