Donald L. Logan (1933-2013), whose photo appears on the right, was a longtime teacher in the Seattle Public School system who also became a businessman in the mid-1970s. Don Logan loved the history of the Civil War. He was proud of his ancestors who fought or otherwise played a role in this hugely important historical saga. His undergraduate training at the University of Washington, Seattle, focused on the Civil War and his M.A. thesis topic was on the role of Charles Francis Adams during and after the conflict. Later in his retirement, Don Logan expressed his admiration for the Civil War by endowing a Chair at the University of Washington, Seattle, in Nineteenth Century American History with an emphasis on the transformation of the nation because of that conflict. The friends of Donald L. Logan have established this memorial page on African Americans and the Civil War in his honor. This page gathers together all of the information on BlackPast.org related to African Americans and the Civil War.
