    In compelling poetry, the spirits of Frederick Douglas, John Brown, and William Tecumseh Sherman come alive. So does the heart-rending tale of a Confederate son and Union father, the desperate struggle of boys fighting like men, the horrifying shrieks of the wounded, and the pitiful plight of a toil-weary slave. One poetic letter finds distraught parents aching for a son who hasn’t been heard from in months. Another spotlights a wounded lad languishing in a POW camp, determined to survive his living nightmare.

    Cutlass held high above his head, tangled beard shining black as the deepest night, the Pirate King struck fear into the heart of any sailor fool enough to venture out onto the high seas. This daring buccaneer may have been born with the name Edward Teach, but the swashbuckling terror would forever be known as Blackbeard. “Tall as a waterfall” and “strong as a rum-soaked cask”, Blackbeard lives on in countless tales of seafaring exploits.
