Item description for Slave: First Manassas to Appomattox Court House by Fineste Baker...
HISTORY / MULTI-CULTURALISM / CIVIL WAR
Why was the slave running as far away from his master as he could? What was he thinking when John Brown was being hanged? What was the slave doing during this time?
Some historians have ignored or denied that slavery was a cause of the Civil War. But was owning a human being as one owns a mule to work the fields, as one owns a piece of property, not a cause?
Fineste Baker gives his opinion about slavery and its relationship with the War Between the States. He touches upon what slaves were doing, thinking, and feeling while all peoples' blood hallowed the ground from First Manassas to Appomattox Court House. The author answers some of these haunting questions that have been painfully missing in the true blood horrors of the Civil War.

More About Fineste Baker
Herbert W. Johnson (whose pen name is Fineste Baker) was born in Chicago, Illinois, and attended high school on Chicago's South Side. He play basketball, received a scholarship to a junior college in Iowa, and graduated from college in Colorado, receiving a master's degree in psychology.
When his wife Kathy went to graduate school in Virginia, Mr. Johnson discovered the history of that state which, in turn, led to the histories of the other Confederate states and a growing interest of the Civil War.
He is now a long-standing member of the Civil War Preservation Trust and visits Civil War parks whenever he can. Some of his favorites include: Gettysburg, Appomattox, Manassas, Cold Harbor, Fredricksburg, and Richmond. His goal is to see them all, especially those in the Deep South and along the Mississippi River. Some day, he also hopes to build, from a kit, a .54-caliber Springfield rifle and become a member of the 8th Illinois Calvary.
His favorite personality of the Civil War era is Shadrac, a slave who was sold for punishment. This slave is considered a legend because he found his way back to Virginia (from Louisiana) after the war and was reunited with his family. Mr. Johnson's book Slave addresses this very issue: how families were so painfully separated.
Living now in Englewood, Colorado, the author works for the state's juvenile probation department administering drug/alcohol assessments.
Slave: First Manassas to Appomattox Court House is Fineste Baker's first published book of the Civil War.
