New Information on General C. F. Smith


Letter from Allen Smith about membership in the Aztec Club

Yesterday I was contacted by one  of General Smith’s descendants who lives in Portland, OR. He informed me that he had discovered a number of documents that dealt with Charles and Allen Smith. We visited on the phone and he was excited to share this information with me.  Later that day, he emailed me that his uncle had an extensive collection of Smith memorabilia. These two discoveries will add to the public’s knowledge of General Smith and shed new light on the life of General Allen Smith and his family. I hope to be able to incorporate this information in my new book, Your Affectionate Father, Charles F. Smith.
