Gregory Newson, founder of Newson Publishing, presents the opposite side of what historians employed by the winners of the Civil War have recorded throughout history. Gregory Newson, writer, artist of realistic, and fantasy art shares his first fictional book with some historical facts included is hot off the press titled “Uncle T and the Uppity Spy. Mr. Newson reveals the fictionalized story of two young black brothers whose lives take different paths and diverge into very different directions during the Civil War era. The young black boy, Jim Lewis, is chosen to be a house slave to Thomas J. Jackson (soon to become General “Stonewall” Jackson), while living on Jackson’s farm. Jim’s manners, intelligence and character,impress General Jackson and endured the boy to him. When the war begins, a mature Jim serves as General Jackson’s trusted body servant. The book reveals that both Black men and White men fought on both sides of the war and not all slaves were treated poorly. The two men grow close and the story is intertwined with a twin brother of Jim Lewis consigned to life working in the fields that leads to the contrasts between the two twin brothers. Newson points out that General “Stonewall” Jacks holds the honor of being known as the undefeated General.
