This website is dedicated to J. G. Hastin who served with the 42nd Regiment Georgia Volunteers Cavalry Unit during the War Between The States.
J. G. Hastin's name appears on the Colored Soldiers' Roll of the Tennessee Confederate Pension Records in the Tennessee State Library and Archives. His pension number is C84. Based on the Board of Pension Examiners, "Confederate veterans applied to the pension board of the state in which they resided at the time of application, even if this was not the state from which they served."
Because his achievements in military service is not widely recognized, the world may never know in what capacity J. G. Hastin served with the 42nd Regiment Georgia Volunteers Cavalry Unit.
Therefore, the fictitious main character, Isaac Green, was created to preserve the memory of men like J. G. Hastin. The Street Life Series team pays homage to the African Americans and Confederate descendants who continued to strengthen race relations in the Deep South by jointly attending United Confederate Veterans reunions for over a century after the American Civil War was over.
