Publisher's Summary

A descendant of Nathan Bedford Forrest's slaves, Al Arnold, tells his journey of embracing his Confederate heritage. His ancestor, Turner Hall, Jr., a Black Confederate, served as a body servant for two Confederate soldiers and an orderly for Gen. Robert E. Lee. Turner Hall, Jr., was celebrated by Blacks and Whites in his community. Hall attended the last Civil War reunion at Gettysburg in 1938. He was interviewed by the national talk radio show, "We, The People". This is a personal journey of faith, heritage, race, and family wrapped around the grace of God through the eyes and honest thoughts of a modern Black man. Arnold argues for African Americans to embrace Confederate heritage to capture the enriched Black history of the Civil War era. He bestows dignity and honor on his Confederate ancestor and challenges the traditional thoughts of modern African Americans. Arnold rests in his faith as the uniting force that reconciles our colorful past to our bright future.

    "Excellent story and informative!"

    I am very pleased with my purchase. This is an amazing story and of value to both White Southerners and Black Southerners who, in fact, share a heritage , once not as equals,, but now as equal citizens of a United States.

    Story
    "Engaging"

    I thoroughly enjoyed both the book and lively narration. The author has an obvious love for history, his family, God and his country, but he never expresses this in a preachy manner. His narrative is engaging, and the subject is fascinating as he speaks with pride of his Confederate roots and why we should respect the past and not try to erase it. The story of his ancestor, a slave, who participated in the Civil War as a proud Confederate, is compelling.
