Overview

Introducing Frederick Douglass

The Civil War has just begun, and the controversy between the North and the South continues to heat up. Everybody seems to be getting into the action—except for Danny Sims. Danny wants nothing more than to fight with the Fifty-Fourth Massachusetts Infantry, Frederick Douglass’s newly formed black regiment. But his young age and a lane foot keep Danny from enlisting. The boy feels good for nothing until Frederick Douglass recommends Danny as the caretaker of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw’s horses. Danny knows the importance of this task, and he’s confident he will do an excellent job.


But when the colonel’s own horse escapes one night, Danny goes after him, only to find himself inside the Confederate soldiers’ fort. In terror, he remembers the Fifty-Fourth’s plans of immediate attack—what if the battle begins while he is inside? When Danny sees that the Confederates are making their own plans for the attack, Danny realizes that the Union soldiers are being set up for a trap! Can Danny escape in time to warn his troops?

Editorial Reviews

NR Book Service, 4/28/04R
There’s no better way to introduce your 8 to 14 year olds to Christian heroes than through these exciting works of historical fiction. Each narrative brings today’s youngsters into close contact with a man or woman of faith as seen through the eyes of a child whose life intersects in a dramatic way with the famous Christian. The stories give accurate portrayals both of history and of the character of the Christian hero while holding kids captive to a tale of adventure.
Provident Book Finder, Sept/Oct 2000
Say “history” and many people yawn. Say “novel” and others think the book’s not true. But everyone loves a good story about real people and actual events touched with a dab of fantasy. I was about to ask the authors what was true and what was not, but their books have a page answering exactly that question. That is most helpful. Dave and Neta Jackson are masters in writing historical novels…for ages 8-12, though many adults can’t resist.
