Epic Journeys of Freedom: Runaway Slaves of the American Revolution and Their
Global Quest for Liberty

Cassandra Pybus


FROM THE PUBLISHER
During the American Revolution, thousands of slaves fled their masters to
find freedom with the British. Having emancipated themselves- and with the
rhetoric about the inalienable rights of free men ringing in their ears-
these men and women struggled tenaciously to make liberty a reality in their
own lives.

This alternative narrative of freedom fought for and won traces the stories
of dozens of individuals- including Harry, one of George Washington's slaves-
who left America and forged difficult new lives in far-flung corners of the
British Empire. The challenges these newly freed black people faced in London
in the 1780s have been virtually unrecognized by history, as has the path
that some individuals were forced to take in two bizarre colonial experiments
in 1787 in Sierra Leone, Africa, and Botany Bay, Australia. This path
breaking work, engagingly written in the best tradition of history from the
bottom up, will alter how you think about the American Revolution.
