I am a first generation American on my Mother's side. Half of my Dad's family have been here for hundreds of years. Of that half, part were slave holders who lost everything they owned at the battle of Chickamonga which completly destroyed their plantation. During this time, others were fighting for the north.

Hats off to your forefathers who fought for South galiently and with honor. I visited what remains of the site of the battle last fall (Chickamauga) in Georgia. Maybe you can claim reparations for your lost land, property with interest. I am sure some lawyer will take your case.
