“John Laurens’ War” is the fight for freedom by John Laurens from South Carolina, for every slave in America along with every colonist. During the War for American freedom, John told his slave-owning father, “We have sunk the Africans…below the Standard of Humanity.” Along with his freed slave, he defies his father and becomes a trusted top aide to George Washington, willing to risk everything to create liberty in the new nation. As an extraordinary warrior, brilliant visionary, charming enigma, John takes on the British army, his father, the new congress and before his death at 27, becomes one of our greatest abolitionists ninety years before slavery ended in America.
