The History Detectives at PBS
Welcome to all of you looking for additional information about Silas and Andrew Chandler. I’ve been writing about the two for a few years now as part of my broader interest in how the presence of enslaved and free blacks in the Confederate army have been remembered in popular culture. What follows is everything I’ve written about these two individuals. Hopefully, the posts will give you something to think about as you await the airing of PBS’s segment on the famous tintype. Thanks for stopping by.
