BLACK TEXAS CONFEDERATES

A Texas graduate student claims he has “documented with 100% irrefutable primary sources” the service of black Texans "who served in the Confederate Army." As is the norm with claims of this sort, he’s counting slaves forced to serve as teamsters, laborers, and personal servants as men “who served in the Confederate Army”:

Note: This graduate student also counted as “primary sources” historical markers erected by various Texas county historical societies during the 1960s. Is anyone else troubled by the fact that a graduate student in a history program thinks that such markers are primary sources?
