Aliene Humphries was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina and graduated from Columbia College with degrees in Special Education and Public Speaking/Drama. In 2010, she wrote her first book, “The Legacy of A Common Civil War Soldier” which was based on the letters written by her great-grandfather Private Thomas Marion Shields in 1861-1865.

In this presentation, Aliene Humphries talks about the newly established Liberty Trail in South Carolina and the fascinating but little-known stories of the Revolutionary War’s Southern Campaigns. The Liberty Trail includes sixty-nine battleground sites with a map.

Other books authored by Ms. Humphries include: “The War That Made America: The French and Indian War” , “The Legacy Of A Common Civil War Soldier: Private T. M. Shields” - Humphries authored a book using the letters her great grandfather wrote back home to his beloved wife during 1861-1865. Based on the book The Legacy of A Common Civil War Soldier, this program offers a rare glimpse of what life was really like for a Confederate soldier and his wife.
