Description
 

Told for the first time in picture book form is the true story of James Lafayette--a slave who spied for George Washingtons army during the American Revolution.

After his resounding defeat at the battle of Yorktown, British general Charles Cornwallis made a point of touring the American camp, looking for the reason behind his loss. What he didnt expect to see was James, a runaway slave who had served as a guide to the British army. Or at least thats what Cornwallis was led to believe. In fact, James wasnt actually an escaped slave--he was a spy for the American army.

But while America celebrated its newfound freedom, James returned to slavery in Virginia. His service as a spy hadnt qualified him for the release hed been hoping for. For James the fight wasnt over; his next adversary was the Virginia General Assembly. Hed already helped his country gain its freedom, now it was time to win his own.
