Mary Lee Brady, Ph.D.










Jackson Lee escaped slavery in Virginia before the Emancipation Proclamation in 1862 to allow young men like him to enlist in the Union Army; and deprive the rebel economy of critical slave manpower for it's critical industries and agriculture.  After the war he stayed in Washington, D.C. knowing that to return to Patrick County, Virginia would not be good for him or family still living there. 

Jefferson Davis had proclaimed that escaped slaves who joined the Union Army were traitors to their native country (Confederate States of America); and after the war many White ex-confederate soldiers still held that view and sought vindication via methods organized by former slave trader and confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest.
