The faces and names of seventeen African-American soldiers who served under Captain William A. Prickitt are recorded in a rare surviving miniature photo album that was treasured by the Union Army officer, passed down through generations of his family, and is now part of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture. A mix of free and enslaved blacks ranging in age from fifteen to fifty, the soldiers have been enlarged to life size in colored pencil drawings by Michigan artist Shayne Davidson, who meticulously researched the lives of the men.
