On Tuesday, April 10 at 7pm at the Tennessee Genealogical Society's office at 7779 Popular Pike in Germantown, Al will talk about his book, Robert E. Lee's Orderly - A Black Man's Confederate Journal, and his search in understanding the complexities of his ancestor's service to the Confederacy. A descendant of slaves, Al discovers his ancestor was not only a slave of General Nathan Bedford Forrest, but that he also served as a body servant for two Confederate soldiers and as an orderly for General Robert E. Lee and he was proud of his service to the Confederacy!
Join us as Al tells the story of his great-great grandfather and how family and faith have brought harmony to his new found heritage. Listen as he explains his mission of challenging the traditional thoughts of African Americans and their role in the Civil War.
