Hunter Generations

Hunter Patriots included 331 young Black men who volunteered and served honorably in the U.S. Colored Troop Regiments.  Included in this number was Jack Hunter in the 86th Infantry Regiment.  It is quite likely that he was related to Jackson Hunter, likely a brother or cousin and one of the 40,000 young Black men killed in the fighting.   Such being the case, it would be understandable to believe that Jack would name his son Jackson, rather than Jack, Jr.
