Three books that present an excellent commentary of the black slave, soldier and freedman culture are
Blasengame's The Slave Community,
Trudeau and
Foner's Reconstruction: America's Unfinished Revolution, 1863-1877.
 
Read as a continuum, they provide a great basis for understanding the Afirican-American experience from ante bellum slavery through Reconstruction and into Jim Crow...
