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.

What percentage should I have to pay?

Pick a small nit...

It's Chickamauga, if you're referring to the Civil War battle in North Georgia, near the Tennessee line. (It's in my backyard)
