|Confederate Col. Abram Fulkerson|
|comes to life|
If you recall, I'm the descendent of Nancy Fulkerson's and John Hilton's son James Milton Hilton, and I'm the one who reenacts with the 19th Tennessee Infantry.
Since August of this year, I'm also reenacting as Col. Abram Fulkerson, Jr of the 19th and 63rd Tennessee Infantry Regiments. I have the uniform and portray him at events, and I've also been presenting his life's story for Sons of Confederate Veterans meetings and historical societies. I've been asked to do his story as the featured guest speaker at the Lee-Jackson Day Dinner in Bristol, TN on January 17. Portraying Abram and telling his story has taken off like a rocket for me. The audiences have loved it and it's reception has exceeded my wildest expectations.
I've attached a couple of photos as the Colonel. One is of the Honor Guard for a grave marker dedication and the old Colonel was asked to command the Honor Guard. That's me on the far right. The second photo is me at the Sullivan County Court House after doing the presentation for the SCV camp there.
