What Does Liberty Mean for a Freedman?
Calabar was brought from Africa to North-Carolina as a boy and sold on the docks as chattel property to a plantation owner. On the plantation, he learned the intricacies of indigo production, fell in love, and started a family.
Abruptly released from bondage, he must find his way in a society that has no place for him, but which is itself struggling with the threat of British domination. Reeling from personal griefs, and drawn into the chaos of the Revolution, Calabar knows that the wrong moves could cost him his freedom—and that of the nation.
The Freedman is Hedbor’s standalone novel set in North-Carolina from his Tales From a Revolution Series, in which he examines the American War of Independence as it unfolded in each of the colonies. If you like enthralling stories of familiar events from unfamiliar viewpoints, you’ll love The Freedman.

We are brought into the life of a slave turned freedman in a first-rate fashion. His struggles, hopes, and fears are eloquently portrayed. The incidents of racism and discrimination Calabar experiences at the hands of white and black are far more than entertainment. They are a reminder of how inhumane one person can be to another even to this day.
I award 4.6 stars to The Freedman: Tales From a Revolution - North-Carolina, the score would have been higher except for the handful of spelling errors I found.
