I have seen photo's (I don't know where to get them now) of at least one USCT group that had colored officers. Not NCO's but officers.
I agree that we do not see enough representation of these groups at events on the mainstream side let alone the C/P/H side.

Don't tell people you do things "exactly like they did" while standing in front of a wall tent you share with your wife with the four poster bed, cooler, camp stove, and heater etc. Be honest with yourself and the people you are talking to.--Robert Collett, 2010
