How Jack Daniel’s Whiskey is a part of Black History Month

It has been proven that a slave by the name of Nearest Green in Lynchsburg Tennessee is who actually distilled the world famous Jack Daniel’s Whiskey not Jack Daniels. But a 150 years ago there was no way for this person to remotely claim credit for their product. Everything a slave produced or made others claimed credit for it.

Another example: Eli Whitney did not invent to the cotton gin. Logical thinking begs us to question why would he invent it? He didn’t have to pluck the seeds from the fluff to make it more valuable for market. But no one knows the name of his slave who actually invented it.

But the story of Nearest Green has been finally proven to be true. Unfortunately, many others like his are still considered a myth.

Jack Daniels

Without many of the inventions and skills of the enslaved people and even after Emancipation this nation would not be as far advanced as it.

No one knows the name of the man who invented or assisted Robert Fulton in the invention of the steam engine which changed the course of history in 1807. The steam powered engine ushered the world into the Industrial Age. Without it, technology wise, we would not be where we are today.

But sadly all we know is that man who either actually built it or assisted in building it he was a slave.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
