30000 rounds...500 black troops....19 dead
Every single black soldier would've had to have shot over 60 rounds, yet only 19 people died moreover the Blacks were probably issued old WWI guns making it more difficult to squeeze of 30k+ rounds. Seems greatly over exaggerated, but I'm not refuting the claim.edit on 11-2-2012 by CaptainNemo because: (no reason given)
