The Black Brigade refers to

The Black Brigade refers to two items in history that I can find. One is a civil war unit from Ohio. The second is a goon squad from Fascist Italy in WWII.

I found reference to the "black robe brigade" which is what the British called a group of preachers in the colonies. They did preach about God given freedoms, from what I can tell. These preachers were also personally involved in the war effort. You could easily say the church was the army now too. All you need to support this is to say, "search the black brigade" and bam. You've made up a fact. :)

edit: sorry that im coming off rude. really really bad week
