According to MSN Microsoft Bing, the New York Times, and the Jack Daniels Whiskey brand, an African American slave named “Uncle Nearest Green” taught Jack Daniels how to make whisky. This sparked the beginning of the popularized Jack Daniels whisky brand.
This story was first acknowledged by the Jack Daniels brand themselves, and this story resembles many unknown/untold stories of African American innovators, creators, developers, and inventors that did not receive credit/mention or royalties for their contributions to America, and have been left out of history.
