(UPDATED 8/28/2013) The Beaufort History Museum is mounting an exhibit about the first former slaves to be officially recognized as Union soldiers in the Civil War.  These soldiers were mustered in on the same day they were given their freedom, as part of a Jubilee at the reading here of the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863.  Robert Smalls helped convince President Lincoln that they would be able troops, and there is evidence that the Proclamation was hurried up to accommodate their enlistment.
