Ans 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 futur. Al Arnold had my respect when I first saw this book published from his postings and conversations on Facebook now that I finally got to read his memoir he has my utmost respect and admiration His look into his own Confederate ancestry as well as his candidness on what diversity really means as well as other things going on in today s world Al you hit the nail on the head here in everything you said in this book Diversity is not destroying something you do not like understand or agree with diversity is accepting all good and bad without hate for one another If only everyone would be so inclined to think rationally and openly what a wonderful thing that would be alas I don t know that it will ever happen from the events going on today I completely agree and have said this myself that there should be monuments built to honor African Americans through history especially this period of history instead of tearing down others There is a historical African American cemetery in Virginia that is completely neglected overgrown and in shambles yet there is time and energy put into the desecration of Confederate cemeteries graves and memorials Sadly nobody has taken the time to research these historic graves of possible slaves and other African Americans to honor them they choose to destroy others instead Also I found records that one of my Confederate ancestors was at Appomattox with Lee I can t help but wonder if our ancestors might have crossed paths in their service to the Confederacy at some point in time It saddens me that you couldn t find records for Turner Hall Jr he was obviously a much loved man in his life and wow 100 years imagine all the information that he had to share over those years Thank you for sharing your journey with the world and I hope you keep searching and are able to find information about the life of the honorable Turner Hall Jr

     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 co. I highly commend Al Arnold on his historical memoir He writes about one of the most famous African American Confederate participants of the Civil War his very own ancestor Turner Hall Jr Arnold uses his own recollections of stories passed down through the generations along with photos to instill in today s Southerners especially those of African American descent that they should be proud of their Confederate heritage because their ancestors earned it He stresses that through Christ African Americans can rise above the thoughts of past injustices done to them and become great Christian men of honor and success However he stresses that they must rethink who they are and learn to work together not fight each other to better their lives By telling Mr Hall s story with the backdrop of the Civil War Mr Arnold demonstrates the greatness already embedded in the African American ancestry even when their stories have went mostly untold left forgotten which is a grave travestyYou cannot tell the history of the Civil War without African Americans It is impossible to tell one without the other This is not solely because of slavery In the beginning the Northerners believed the insurrection would end within six months They never imagined the power of African American Confederates to keep the war going year after year It is a testament to the tenacity as much as the sheer determination of Confederate blacks to fight for and with their Caucasian counterparts and practically family These children grew up together When the white soldiers went off to fight they took their childhood friends along to look after their needs as well as workloads Most other slaves kept the homelands profiting in order to enable the war to continue for as long as it did They did not rebel en mass like the Northerners believed they would I loved that Mr Arnold was able to finally as a historian remind laymen of this fact As a historian myself I remember the saying History was always written by the victor It wasn t until the ladder part of the twentieth century that any other story was given any merit much less any care However Mr Arnold reminds us that this false sense of history was far from the truth He reminds us that real history is so much richer and complex than we have ever been lead to believe And the untold stories need to be told in order for us to keep the momentum going to keep each one of our heritages alive and thriving There is so much to this book than meets the eye And the proof can be found in the life of Mr Turner Hall JrThank you to Publish Green and Netgalley for giving me a free copy of this book to read and give an honest review
