About this title


A biography of a former slave who was active in the anti-slavery movement, as a fugitive in Canada, a "stationmaster" on the Underground Railroad, a supporter of John Brown, and a recruiter for "black regiments."

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-An insightful and engaging biography. When one thinks of the Abolitionist Movement of the 1800s, names like Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, and Wendell Phillips more than likely come to mind. Hayden may not be as familiar, but he played a pivotal role in history. Born a slave in Kentucky in 1811, he escaped to the North with his wife and son in 1844. Eventually settling in Massachusetts, he immediately became involved with different facets of the antislavery movement. During the Civil War, he was instrumental in organizing and recruiting African-American soldiers for the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment. Strangis acknowledges the difficulties involved in conveying this man's life, as there were few written records about him. The book is well researched and has a detailed bibliographical essay. All in all, this is a worthy purchase, particularly for the information on blacks in the antislavery movement.
