In the documentary History of the Confederacy, a soldier compares his sergeant to a slave master. They are taught to march under the sergeant’s instructions, but not given any guns. Instead, they are told to dig ditches and work like mules carrying supplies. The top officer of this unit uses derogatory racial slurs, and they are given half the amount of food that white soldiers receive.
Native Guard is organized into three parts, the first being an autobiographical essay. The second part is a documentary history, which is both historical and personal. The autobiography is personal, but the book also makes use of her history to inform her writing. She is not only telling the story of her life, but of the people who made it possible. For example, she describes the tragic relationship she has with her mother, who was an illegal slave and married a white man. Then, she describes the death of her husband and children, and the subsequent burials.
Another major theme of Native Guard is the death of the black men in the Civil War. The narrator cites a battle at Pascagoula, a town near the southern shores of the Mississippi. The black soldiers proved their fighting ability and died, but the white Union soldiers began firing at them when they retreated. Several deaths were documented, and the narrator mentions a time when the dead were buried. The black troops were subsequently enslaved by the white Union soldiers and were able to continue the struggle.
The final part of the film is about a black regiment’s efforts to free themselves from slavery and gain independence. The narrator’s narration emphasizes this theme by mentioning the battle at Pascagoula, which is located close to the southern shores of the Mississippi. After the victory, the white Union soldiers began firing on the black men and began to bury them.
In the second part of the film, scenes from a documentary history of Mississippi focus on the 1860s during the Civil War. While this period in the South was dominated by Jim Crow laws, which deprived African Americans of their citizenship, the black soldiers fought and won.
