NABVETS Announces Civil War Book Partnership

The National Association for Black Veterans, Inc. (NABVETS) is pleased to announce that Pulitzer Prize winner Melvin Claxton and the family of his late co-author Mark Puls have agreed to donate to NABVETS 100% of the 2016 royalties from the e-book version of “Uncommon Valor: A Story of Race, and Glory in the Final Battles of the Civil War.” In Uncommon Valor, Claxton and awarding-winning historian Mark Puls tell the story of African American farmers, laborers, and tradesmen who were willing to sacrifice their lives to end slavery, and win respect for their race at a time when much of America shunned them.

Claxton called the donation a small down payment on the great debt owed black soldiers who have risked all for the freedom of their fellow countrymen from the inception of America.

The Uncommon Valor e-book is currently on sale for $9.99 at the following links:  and
