Near the end of the Civil War, the United States Colored Troops (USCT) won a pivotal Union victory at the Battle of Forks Road in Wilmington. The Cameron Art Museum, which oversees the site, commissioned Stephen Hayes to honor the USCT’s legacy with a public artwork. In response, he created a lifesize bronze sculpture cast from 11 African American men connected to the site and its story.
