Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0590475770, Paperback)

In the Revolutionary War of the United States, black soldiers fought bravely for the freedom of a country that had enslaved and oppressed them. Their story of courage and sacrifice is finally told.

A riveting retelling of the American Revolution including what most history books leave out: The story of more than 5,000 black men who enlisted in the Continental Army and risked their lives to gain freedom for the country that oppressed them. "In addition to paying tribute to some overlooked figures, this book also demonstrates why one historical account is never enough to establish the facts, and the surprises to be found in good research." -Kirkus Reviews
