Monday, January 1, 1855 to Sunday, December 31, 1882
Notes: 

TMT: As with Event 468, this Event could be described as narrated; I chose remembered because the language seems to echo Hightower's conscious thought in August 1932.
SR: I'm turning all these into Narrated instead, to keep the term Remembered consistent with way it's used elsewhere in DY.

Summary: 

The narrator reflects on the character of Hightower's father, and the paradox of fighting for the Confederacy and rejecting slavery.
