Anglo-Zulu War in Southern VictoryEdit
When Frederick Douglass met with German Colonel Alfred von Schlieffen, they briefly discussed the possibility of blacks serving as soldiers. General Orlando Willcox's American aide, Captain Oliver Richardson, argued with Douglass about the point and later disparaged the idea to Schlieffen, saying that despite Douglass' 'boasting' blacks lacked the spirit and courage to be good soldiers. Schlieffen pointed out the difficulties that the British Army had faced in South Africa against Zulu warriors during the Anglo-Zulu War, a fact Richardson had no counterargument for.
