The first thing Daniel Jones wants people to take away from Boundless, a life-size bronze sculpture representing members of the United States Colored Troops by artist Stephen Hayes, is the “recognition of a story most people didn’t know,” he said. 
Jones (pictured), cultural curator of the statue’s home, Cameron Art Museum, leads tours of the outdoor Civil War history sculpture for visitors to CAM. The piece depicts 11 men marching outside the museum on the very ground where the USCT once fought, within the Forks Road Civil War Site.
Descendants of USCT, which were Union Army regiments composed of Black soldiers, still make their home in Southeastern North Carolina, Jones said. “They played a very large and impactful role in the shaping of this community,” he said. “They helped liberate the town.”
