When the Union military invaded northeastern North Carolina February of 1862, the mixed-race Robbins family had already survived colonial wars, near-extinction, racial oppression and other calamities dating back to the 1580’s.  It was during and after the Civil War that the Robbins came into their own, warring in Virginia, South Carolina and Florida.  This is the CDG’s 3rd presentation at the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum.
