Charlotte Forten's Mission( Visual )

8 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of a heroine - perhaps not a traditional heroine, for one would not necessarily look upon a young, frail-of-health, free black woman from a well-to-do Philadelphia family in Civil War times as someone who would implicitly inspire the word ⁰́heroine.⁰́₊ But then Charlotte Forten was an extraordinary young woman. As a part of President Lincoln⁰́₉s ⁰́₋great experiment⁰́₊, she journeyed south to Sea Island, where she sought to give newly freed black children a decent education and the chance for a better life. In many ways the story is as remarkable as the lady who lived it. For Charlotte Forten⁰́₉s Mission is the inspiring true story of one woman⁰́₉s courage and determination during the time of the Civil War - a world torn apart by the fear and prejudice
