Untitled[edit]

This is not the first racially integrated US warship. There were more than 18,000 african american sailors identified as serving in the civil war. Many on warships. Many listed as "sailor", not "steward". The racial backlash after the Civil War lead to the "de-integration" of the Navy and Coast Guard. Which lasted until the Seacloud. Can't call it the "first".

Reference is http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/sailors_index.html The National Park Services records on Civil War veterans. I'll bet you can find african american sailors in the Revolutionary War as well. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 152.121.18.98 (talk) 16:09, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
