During the civil war, he was very active in leading an African American military unit and gained the title of a Brevet General. Armstrong worked closely with the Freedmens's Bureau and helped speak out against slavery. By doing this, he understood the needs of African Americans and created Hampton University to satisfy these needs. Today, Hampton is still going strong and is very succesful.
