Troops and contrabands? Homosexuality in CW military?

I am a graduate student (M.A.) at Central Washington University, and I want to write my thesis on a Civil War-related topic. I was thinking about looking at court martial records to investigate relations between troops and contrabands.

Liuzza.  The reviewer is Frank Kermode in a piece titled "The Geat of Geats" in the July 20, 2000 edition of the _New York Review of Books_.
