I have read many stories about the African-American experience during the Civil War. Slavery, despair and the down-right mistreatment of an entire race of people. This story is unlike any story I've read. This perspective and experience of one African-American during the Civil War goes against everything I expected. A very interesting true story of one African-American man's experience during such a turbulent time in our history. A must read!
