Crispus Attucks is known as the escaped slave whose freedom ended when he died in the Boston Massacre, but there are many other lesser-known black men and women who made enormous contributions to U.S. independence. Readers will discover Edward Hector, the brave wagoner of Brandywi≠ artilleryman and slave Austin Dabney; William Lee, the aide and closest companion of George Washington throughout the war; and many others. Includes a bibliography, a foreword by Senator Edward W. Brooke, and an index.
