Abby Guy was an illiterate slave woman, but bold and audacious, who took the slave establishment to court and put race and slavery on trial before a jury. She lived three decades as a slave and then ten years as a free woman, wife, widow and mother. In December of 1854 she and her four children were kidnapped by her former owner, William Daniel, and re-enslaved.

This is the story of a girl's father, a man's life, with its ups and downs and strivings for success.

David Calvin Bledsoe was a poor man who in the best of times never owned land and could barely support a family.

He afterward lived a ruined physical life and a disastrous financial one. He and his wife were dependent upon the charity of family and friends for their day to day sustenance. The Union veteran pension system - the physicians, politicians, and bureaucrats - did not know how to deal with Bledsoe, and those ...
