On Jefferson Davis's General Order Number 14

Among its provisions, it commanded that all white Confederate officers provide "a provident, considerate, and humane attention to whatever concerns the health, comfort, instruction, and discipline of those (black) troops, and to uniform observances of kindness, forbearance, and indulgence in their treatment of them, and especially that they will protect them from injustice and oppression."............So, when was the last time that you ever read THAT in a history book? Probably never, huh?
