Ely Parker: One Real American
Dr. Jim Hedtke
Wednesday, Oct. 8th, 7 p.m.
Ely Parker, a Seneca Indian from Genesee County, NY, became the most famous and highest ranking Native American in the Union Army during the Civil War. He served on Grant's staff and penned the surrender agreement at Appomattox Court House. After the Civil War, Parker became the first Native American to head the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Throughout his entire life, Parker faced racial prejudice that left him straddling the world of his Seneca heritage and the world of the white man. In the direst hour of American history, General Parker faithfully served the country that denied him and his people citizenship. Registration is required. To register, click here.
