Mother’s day, Sunday May, 10 on The Linwood Jackson Radio Show, Linwood speaks with Mrs. Dianne Cross, researcher, creator, and presenter. Join us Live wfai 1510 am or @ www.wfai1510.com/programs/20 2-3 every Sunday.
April 9th, 2015 marked the 150th anniversary of one of the United States most historical moments, the conclusion of the Civil War. In honor of this significant part of our nation’s history, I am honored to have Mrs. Cross on the show. She uses oral family history along with 19th century documents to tell the amazing story of her great great-grandfather, Sgt. Isaac Hall, an African American Civil War Soldier.
She will be on the show to give a synopsis of “A Long Overdue Story “From a slave to a soldier to freedom” the story of Sgt. Isaac Hall, told by Mrs. Cross his great great-granddaughter.
Dianne has shared her story with many educational institutions, historical societies, social and private gatherings to much praise and acclaim. She has put together a full presentation which combines her captivating storytelling style with audio visuals and she is available to bring the story to your audience.
The ‘Long Overdue Story’ DVD is an ideal complement to the curriculum when teaching about the United States Civil War. It would be a fine addition to any home, school, or public library. The digital download of the DVD is available as a teaching aid or student resource for a mere five dollars. See excerpts of the DVD at http://www.longoverduestory.com/videos/.
This is the story of Isaac Hall, one of Delaware’s sons, from a slave in Sussex County Delaware, to a Sgt. in the United States Colored Troops, to a Free Man. The Emancipation Proclamation had no effect on Isaac Hall. His path to freedom was War Department General Order 329. It offered up to 300 dollars to slave owners for the enlistment of their slave into the military.
This is a historically accurate and an entertaining way for educators to help students learn about their nation’s history. On this DVD Dianne Cross tells how she started with only his name, a portrait, and oral family history. That was then. Now, after several years of research she can tell ‘A Long Overdue Story’ of one of the over 200,000 African American Civil War soldiers that fought to abolish slavery and preserve the Union. It also has copies of official documents including the title to another human being.
