Allen F. Cameron (born 1836) was a U.S. Army officer, originally from Canada, who served with the 14th Rhode Island Heavy Artillery Regiment (Colored) which was later redesignated the 8th U.S. Colored Heavy Artillery Regiment in April 1864, and reorganized as the 11th U.S. Colored Heavy Artillery Regiments in May 1864, and finally mustered out at Camp Parapet (New Orleans), La., in 1865.
Contents
The collection contains personal and official correspondences, general and special orders, rosters, courts-martial records, and other documents, detailing Cameron’s activities during the war, as well as life in the Union Army, and the treatment of black troops by white officers.
