Overview

What Does Liberty Mean for a Freedman?

Calabar was brought from Africa to North-Carolina as a boy and sold on the docks as chattel property to a plantation owner. On the plantation, he learned the intricacies of indigo production, fell in love, and started a family.

Abruptly released from bondage, he must find his way in a society that has no place for him, but which is itself struggling with the threat of British domination. Reeling from personal griefs, and drawn into the chaos of the Revolution, Calabar knows that the wrong moves could cost him his freedom—and that of the nation.

The Freedman is Hedbor’s standalone novel set in North-Carolina from his Tales From a Revolution series, in which he examines the American War of Independence as it unfolded in each of the colonies. If you like enthralling stories of familiar events from unfamiliar viewpoints, you’ll love The Freedman.

About the Author

Lars D. H. Hedbor is an amateur historian, astronomer, fiddler, home brewer, linguist and baker. His fascination with the central question of how the populace of the American Colonies made the transition from being subjects of the Crown to being citizens of the Republic drives him to tell the stories of those people, whether in classrooms, on television, or in the pages of his novels. Hedbor resides in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and many daughters.
