Harris, Frank W.
Harris writes on his experience in the war, noting that he was put "in command of colored troops;" relays his experience working with "Negro soldiers." Harris asks, "What is the future for these American Soldiers? I see none, although I believe the Negro gained more educationally by the war than the white man;" argues "no advice can be worse than urging him to fight for his rights. that is hopeless." Harris suggests colonization as an alternative, though understands "that the Negro does not want to leave the United States," but believes "colonization will never draw the Negro race from the United States, its greatest advantage would be to demonstrate the possibilities, and the limitations of the race."
