5.0 out of 5 stars Camp William Penn, June 22, 2008

This review is from: Camp William Penn (Images of America: Pennsylvania) (Paperback)
Camp William Penn (Images of America: Pennsylvania)
Outstanding account of a forgotten chapter of American Civil War history. A must read for those interested in all histories--American, civil war, military and African-American. Excellent source of information for school students that includes rare pictures and detailed captions. Topics cover Camp William Penn's formation, personal accounts of officers, battles fought, abolitionists associated with the Camp (Frederick Douglass, Harriett Tubman, Lucretia Mott, William Still), Underground Railroad, Medal of Honor winners and others. Located just outside of Philadelphia, Camp William Penn's story is nothing less than fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better book than expected, February 1, 2014

This review is from: Camp William Penn (Images of America: Pennsylvania) (Paperback)
Camp William Penn is very much like a Life Magazine of Black History in Philadelphia during the Civil War. It's hard for me to imagine black people as free people in the 1860's in our nation. Yet there were hundreds of thousands who were black, free, patriotic and willing to go and lay their lives down for their country. It is one eye opening book. I was shocked to read how officers would execute all the black soldiers whenever they were going to be captured by the Confederates. They did this so the Confederates wouldn't shoot them for leading black soldiers into battle. I was amazed to read how a Regiment of Black Soldiers was executed in Florida after the war ended. Lots of rare, one of a kind pictures in this book and many things you would never read any where else. One amazing eye opening book. I'm so thankful I was able to find this book.
