FreeJoe is based on family history. I have spent the last 14 years researching the life of my great, great, great grandfather, Joseph H. FreeJoe Harris. This book is based on oral history and over 142 courthouse documents that are at least 125 years old and support the oral history. This book not only covers the life of FreeJoe, but it covers all of the historical events that shaped America.
Events such as the War of 1812, The Louisana Purchase, The Trail of Tears, The Civil War, and Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, just to name a few. Many of FreeJoe's contemporaries such as Nat Turner, Frederick Douglas, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, William Lloyd Garrison, Alexander Campbell as well as all the presidents that served during his life time, beginning with President George Washington in 1796 and ending with President Ulysses Simpson Grant in 1875.
