Come August, Come Freedom: The Bellows, the Gallows, and the Black General Gabriel (Paperback)
Everywhere, planters are screaming for freedom from the King of England, yet hold thousands of slaves in bondage. Gabriel was born dreaming of freedom, wanting the taste of having no man own his body, and being free to go wherever and with whomever he pleased.
Gabriel wants freedom for himself, his wife, his unborn children, as well as friends, family and slaves throughout Virginia. He believes he can lead a group of slaves to freedom, just like Touissant, and sets about finding and making weapons, and seeking men to join his makeshift army of rebellion against the White slave owners.
Despite knowing what eventually happened to Gabriel, readers aged 12 and up will be caught up in his heartfelt plea to be free and will also be drawn into the horrible institution of slavery prevalent in our nation struggling to gain its own freedom from England.
