Anderson Cooper traces his family's roots through the Deep South

You are used to seeing Anderson Cooper telling other people's stories on AC360, now he is telling his own.  Anderson has been tracing his family's roots and uncovered remarkable secrets that he never imagined.

For the first time, Anderson learns that his ancestors who fought on opposite sides of the Civil War nearly met on the same battlefield. He also learned about a distant relative who was killed by a slave that he owned.

That's not all Anderson found when he traveled to trace his roots in Mississippi and Louisiana.

You can learn more about Anderson's journey along with those of other CNN anchors at CNN.com/Roots

Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. shared new information for Anderson about the slaves owned by his distance ancestor. Professor Gates traced Anderson's family tree for a recent episode of "Finding Your Roots" on PBS.
