Black Civil War Vets Cemetery

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Almost 100 years after his death, a black Union Civil War vet from South Carolina finally has a veterans marker on his grave.

The gravestone for Henry Benjamin Noisette was unveiled Thursday in a black Charleston cemetery. Noisette escaped slavery and joined the U.S. Navy in 1862. The Charleston native served on the USS Huron and saw action against Confederate defenses on the Stono River near Charleston and the Ogeechee River south of Savannah, Ga.

After the war, he stayed in Charleston and died in 1911.

Descendants, black re-enactors and Citadel cadets watched as Noisette’s great-granddaughter unveiled the marker. Researchers only recently discovered Noisette’s military past.
