The Fire of Freedom: Abraham Galloway and the Slaves' Civil War

Thursday, Mar 7, 2013 5:30p
Wilson Library Chapel Hill, NC

Historian David S. Cecelski will discuss his new book, "The Fire of Freedom: Abraham Galloway and the Slaves’ Civil War" (UNC Press, 2012). It tells the thrilling life story of Galloway, a runaway slave and staunch abolitionist who served as a Union spy and recruiter during the war.

Born in Brunswick County, N.C., Galloway advocated for equal rights for African Americans, organized a Freedman’s Convention in Raleigh, and became one of the first black men to serve in the N.C. legislature.
