The website http://www.sallysfamilyplace.com/Schools/elmgrove.htm#Elm%20Grove%20ca%201860 indicates Ackerman ran a boy's school in Murfreesboro, NC...not Tennesee as stated in the Wiki article. Quote from the website: "1843 -- The Academy at Murfreesboro was under the control of A T Ackerman, a young man from New England, who subsequently removed to Georgia and rose to distinction. Having become prominent as a lawyer he was a Confederate officer; and afterwards Attorney General of the United States under Grant. The male academy in Murfreesboro had been conducted by William H Manning, since of Gates. Hertford never gained or lost a better citizen than Mr. Manning, who still survives  in undiminished usefulness. Edward Carter was his successor."....Gates and Hertford refer to counties in the extreme eastern NC. Murfreesboro NC is located near there. Engr105th (talk) 05:42, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
Having no replies in response to my post above, I've changed the article to reflect that he taught in Murfreesboro NC, rather than Murfreesboro TN. Engr105th (talk) 05:39, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
I believe this article needs improvement in terms of structure and additional content. Cmguy777 (talk) 04:40, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
I have been making improvements to the article to fit Wikipedia's format. I plan on using McFeely as a reference in the article. The article is currently in a transition phase. Cmguy777 (talk) 17:29, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
