|Long Description||The role of the African American in American history has been documented but sometimes ignored by historians. This work is intended to assist researchers in locating the wealth of material that has been published. African-Americans in Defense of the Nation builds on a long list of early bibliographies concerning the subject. This work brings together a broad spectrum of titles related to the African-American participation in America's wars. It covers both the military exploits-as African Americans have been involved in every American conflict since the Revolution-and their participation in the homefront support in building the weapons that the armed forces used.|
Organized both chronologically and topically, chapters cover the various conflicts-from the Revolutionary War to the Post World War II era-and branches of the military, as well as the role of African American women in the United States military. This extensive reference work is the most comprehensive listing of African American units available. Additionally, a listing of juvenile titles will assists parents and teachers in locating material.

You may have noticed that we were off line for a while here and there over the past couple days.
We had planned one short outage and posted information about it in advance. But after installing the new RAID system we still had to move all of the data off of the old system over to the new system.
Each time we got data off of one of the hard drives, we had to shut down the system for a short time to physically remove the old drive. We had to do this several times because we had several old drives on the old RAID system and they could only be moved one at a time.
We tried to keep the down time to a minimum but it still took a little longer than expected after the last drive was removed and swapped out. There were a couple unexpted issues relating to that last hard drive.
Fortunately, now with the new RAID in place, we can HOT SWAP drives. This means that when we change out the hard drives we don't have to turn the power off.
We still have a couple internal hard drives that do require a power off if we need to spaw them but it is unlikely we will need to do that unless one dies. The old drives didn't die, we just needed to expand the drive space with larger hard drives so we went to the hot swap system to plan for the future.
