Due North to Freedom
by Terence O'Grady
It is the autumn of 1864 and Richmond is surrounded on three sides by Union troops. This time the Yankees are not going away.
Things become desperate for the O'Toole family, including thirteen year-old Ryan and eleven year-old Matthew, when they help a young freeman and his father escape from the city and the people of Richmond turn against them. Then they too must escape north to freedom.
