In the last several decades a small group of historians, researchers, writers and civil war enthusiasts have begun to recover the stories of these forgotten warriors. Anglicized and ambiguous names and haphazard documentation make it difficult to find these men and confirm their ethnicity, but researchers have identified several hundred soldiers and sailors who served from Asia and the Pacific Islands. Some fought for the Union and some for the Confederacy. There are perhaps many more. These are some of their stories.
''The enduring legacy of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the Civil War is their battle for civil rights. Here are their stories.'', Jonathan B. Jarvis, Director, National Park Service
