Charlotte Forten's Mission( Visual )

8 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and held by 405 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 "heroine." But then Charlotte Forten was an extraordinary young woman. As a part of President Lincoln's "great experiment", 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 Forten's Mission is the inspiring true story of one woman's courage and determination during the time of the Civil War - a world torn apart by the fear and prejudice
