Genealogy Blogging Beat – Saturday, 26 July 2014

July 26, 1944. During WWII the US Army ordered desegregation of its training camp facilities. Later the same year black platoons were assigned to white companies in a tentative step toward integration of the battlefield. However, it was not until after the war— July 26, 1948— that President Harry Truman signed an order officially integrating the armed forces.
