A long-delayed proposal to establish a national memorial in Washington to honor the 5,000 free blacks and slaves who fought as soldiers and sailors during the Revolutionary War got a congressional boost Tuesday when it was passed as part of a massive Senate defense spending bill.

He said in testimony before a Senate committee in 2007 that the "failures had nothing to do with the history or the concept; it had to do with bad management that was in plain view."
