I have been fascinated with John Amenas Fite since I first found his memoir among our family papers as a kid. It didn’t hurt any that I was indirectly named after him. My grandfather, John Walton Fite, was said to be his favorite nephew. John Amenas was the inspiration for John Walton’s name, and John Walton’s, for my name.

This site serves as a supplement to that memoir for posting source materials and any other interesting information.

Col. Fite’s Memoir is available at amazon.com. Just click the book image to see the listing.
