Another golden nugget I found, was on the RootsWeb Page (An Ancestry.com Community), called The African American's Civil War: A History of the 1st North Carolina Colored Volunteers. Chapter 2 -Part 1.
This second article gives lots of information about the formation of the 1st North Carolina Colored Volunteers which was later renamed the 35th United States Colored Infantry. Towards the end of the article it gives a little more detail about the controversy that arose as the result of Dr. DeGrasse being appointed to this unit.
