Why did so many African Americans fight in the civil war on the union side?

So many African Americans fought on the union side because the south had slavery, and because some - but very few - slave owners treated there slaves like clay pigeons on a shotgun range. The African Americans wanted to free the slaves and live a better life. But, a lot of African Americans fought on the rebel side as well. So don't believe anyone when they tell you the southerners were vicious bloodthirsty slave owners. Some rebel army's were made of about 70% slaves.Hope it helps.Have a good day, by.


In the US Civil War what side did the slaves fight for?

Slaves fought for both sides, if they were free they would fight for the North to help free others. If they were slaves they would be forced to go to help the South win. The implementation of having slaves in the South become Confederate soldiers came very late in the war. It did not effect the outcome of the war at all.

Which side won the Civil War and why?

Of course, the Union won the war, which is the North. They won because the South (Confederacy) surrendered, causing them to loose the war. The war was fought because the north wanted equality, which means no slaves, and the Southern states wanted slaves to work for them. Hope this helped. :)
