Jonathan Walker, the Man with the Branded Hand based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Alvin Oickle has written a masterful biography of one of the early leaders of the Abolition Movement, one who was branded on the right hand for the "crime" of stealing slaves. The fact is, he assisted in the escape of seven slaves from Pensacola, FL, but was caught south of present day Miami, one-half day from freedom in the Bahamas. Walker is the only person in recorded American history known to be thus punished, even though the law had been on the books for many years.
