White man by day and a black man by night. In this fictionalized memoir, author Craig E. Rush shares the story of his great-grandfather Lexius Henson Sr., who was one of the richest mulatto men in the Pre and Post Civil War South. Lexius Henson Sr. was the owner of one of the finest restaurants in the U.S., Lexius Henson's Exchange Saloon and Restaurant in Augusta, Georgia. He had the finest china, silverware and linens designed with his monogram stamped or embroidered onto each elegant piece. Some of the most prominent people dined at his restaurant, generals on both sides of the Civil War, including Sherman and Lee, as well as governors, mayors, princes, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Fairchild and Morgan. These great men often used Lexius' knowledge and they partook in his worldly and newly concocted delicacies. Lexius believed the human race is one race and was able to influence the thoughts of many men. In "No Time to Hate", we learn that Lexius Henson was able to change the thoughts of many of them to benefit all mankind.
