From the Paper:

"Douglass sent his Sons into the Boston area to help organize and equip a group of blacks, some former slaves, and some free men into a Volunteer Militia. This was successfully accomplished primarily by his sons but Lincoln's Military Leaders stood firm on the issue of just how the 54th Boston Volunteers were organized. The non-commissioned and commissioned corps of leadership would be white regular Army personnel and no amount of argument ever changed this fact."
