Winner of the Governor General's Award for Non-Fiction, 2007 It was the day before Independence Day, 1831. As his bride, Lucie, was about to be "sold down the river" to the slave markets of New Orleans, young Thornton Blackburn planned a daring - and successful - daylight escape from Louisville. But they were discovered by slave catchers in Michigan and slated to return to Kentucky in chains, until the black community rallied to their cause. The Blackburn Riot of 1833 was the first racial uprising in Detroit history.

Interesting account of the life, social and political conditions during the early 1800s to late 1800s for black slaves in the United States who sought freedom in Canada.
