קּ Read full length ᆉ Rough Crossings: Britain, the Slaves, and the American Revolution online free ᐔ Kindle By Simon Schama ᔕ National Book Critics Circle, Nonfiction, 2007 Rough Crossings turns on a single huge question if you were black in America at the start of the Revolutionary War, who would you want to win Tens of thousands gave their answer, voting with their feet for Britain and King George In response to a declaration by the last governor of Virginia that any rebel owned slave who escaped and served the King would be emancipated, tens of thousands of slaves, Americans who clung to the sentimental notion of British freedom, escaped from farms, plantations, and cities to try to reach the British camp This mass movement lasted as long as the war did, and a military strategy originally designed to break the plantations of the American South had unleashed one of the great exoduses in American history. With powerfully vivid storytelling, often in the voices of the slaves themselves and the white abolitionists who became their emancipators and protectors, Schama details the odyssey of the escaped blacks through the fires of war and the terror of potential recapture at the war s end, into inhospitable Nova Scotia, where thousands who had served the Crown were betrayed and, in a little known hegira of the slave epic, sent across the broad, stormy ocean to Sierra Leone.
