In the footsteps of warriors: Legendary “Indian Robin Hood” descendants thrive in the Georgia Guard

U.S. Air Force Maj. Charles Jacobs, right, detachment commander of the 202nd Engineering Installation Squadron, Georgia Air National Guard, meets with senior leaders of the squadron to discuss plans for an upcoming project, Robins Air Force Base, Ga., Nov. 4, 2014. Jacobs is a member of the Lumbee Indian tribe out of Robeson County, North Carolina. The tribe has more than 55,000 members with two of the members serving together in the Georgia Air National Guard at Robins Air Force Base. Jacobs and a fellow Airman are descendants of Henry Berry Lowry, a young Native American Revolutionist who rose up in 1865 to fight injustice being directed against his people who are the modern day Lumbee Indians. Lowry came to be known as the Indian Robin Hood for his exploits. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Master Sgt. Roger Parsons/Released)
