Summary
"These first hand stories reflect the actual true-life experiences of a prominent Louisiana statesman, Civil War veteran, and District Judge, L.B. Claiborne of New Roads, La. These are stories, as told to his granddaughter during two-year period, reflecting the strength of character that has been passed onto his descendants down through generations. The stories cover the time Judge Claiborne spent as a Georgetown Military Academy cadet in Washington, D.C., the four years during which he served as an infantryman in the Civil War, and the many following years as a prominent legislator, district judge, educator, newspaper owner and statesman. Through his father's friendship with two different Presidents of the United States and other prominent national personalities, he enjoyed many unique experiences involving fascinating people - covering many yet untold stories. These stories, as shared with his granddaughter, reflect the strength of character that has become a hallmark in the lives of his descendants."--Page 4 of cover
