Few history books give Osborne P. Anderson the recognition he deserves.
Anderson was the only Black combatant to survive the raid on Harper's Ferry and write about it. His account of this turning point in the struggle against slavery - an armed attack by Black and white volunteers on a citadel of the South - refutes those who try to minimize the role of African American people in fighting for their freedom.
