Frederick Douglass was a major civil rights activist in the 19th Century Noted for Books and Speeches on Slavery and Oppression. He was NOT a regiment!

Two of his sons served in the 54th Massachussets Regiment. Which was not the first black regiment formed but one of the first Northen Black Regiments formed.

the first Recruited regiment was probably the 1st Louisianna Native Guards or The First South Carolina Colored infantry.

The first black regiment to fight was the 1 Kansas Colored.
