Adkins/Atkins Generations

Most, if not all, African-American male offspring and some female descendents, have heard the story told about men that mattered in the Adkins/Atkins line of patriots in the great war that set four million human beings free from bondage.  Freedom has never been free and at best, ... a gift by one generation to a successor generation who will believe it or not. 

Unenlightened generations by uneducated mothers and disinterested fathers are a certain remedy for assuring their offspring will neither know or care that men such as their Civil War ancestors did truly fight and die for them to be born free. 

Indeed, the war was the first time in which African-Americans were able to realize the impact of generations of brethren bred, bought and sold as animals throughout a nation founded on the promise of liberty. 

Many thousands of men enlisted in the U.S. Army Colored Troops (USCT) and U.S. Navy often met face to face or other men attesting to others who looked, walked, talked and other personal traits like them. 

The Adkins/Atkins men were no exception with so many hundreds scattered throughout the nation.  One problem immediately apparent about their legacy is that a heavy percentage was killed or wounded in action added to those young men such as Ellis Kile/Kyle who did not marry and generate offspring to care and know their stories.

The vast majority of Adkins/Atkins offspring freed in Franklin and Pittsylvania Counties by the Emanicpation Proclamation were old men, women and children without functional knowledge of young men who had runaway and/or died away from them.  In many examples of such ignorance, it would be many years before those freed had any idea as to who paid the price for their freedom.
