Forgotten Heroes of Southern History: Elihu Embree, Abolitionist

From time to time, we’ll take a look at some forgotten heroes of Southern history – the slaves, the abolitionists, the draft dodgers, the Unionists. Though they fought against the Confederate Cause, they were Southerners through and through.
