Productbeschrijving

It is estimated that as many as 18,000 African American men (and some women) served in the American Navy during the Civil War. In addition to fighting along side their white shipmates, they performed many duties necessary to the operation of the navy both on and off ships e.g., cooks, guards, carpenters, workers, wagon drivers, scouts, spies, and medical aides. This book is a fictionalized account of one of those African American's adventures on the ironclad USS Monitor - one of the most famous ships of that war. In 1862, an escaping slave crossed the James River and encountered the USS Monitor that had anchored for the night. Siah Carter was then made a member of the crew and assigned the duties of assistant to the ship's cook. During the next nine months, the young escaped slave experienced one of the most historic naval battles of all time and the sinking of the navy's first iron ship.
