Kennedy, Jr.'s American Heroes: Robert Smalls, the Boat Thief (American Heroes (Hyperion)), On a moonlit night in the spring of 1862, six slaves�stole one of the Confederacy's most crucial gunships from its wharf in the South Carolina port of Charleston, and delivered it to the Federal Navy.� This audacious and intricately coordinated escape, masterminded by a 24-year-old sailor named Robert Smalls, astonished the world and exploded the Confederate claim that Southern slaves did not�crave freedom or have the ability to take decisive action.�Robert Smalls's heroic career had only begun.��A brilliant�sailor and strategist, he was quickly promoted to the rank of captain in the Federal Navy where he served courageously in�many critical battles.��Not only was Smalls a�great soldier, he was also�a powerful activist, whose appeal�to Abraham Lincoln convinced�the president�to enlist 5,000 former slaves, shattering the color barrier that had kept black men out of the service.��Smalls�drew�great crowds as an eloquent�public speaker, and his�outstanding character�inspired the broad public support that encouraged Lincoln to ratify the Emancipation Proclamation.�Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. tells the story of another great American hero, a man who did not flinch in the face of extraordinary dangers--a man whose�dedication to the cause of freedom�made him one the most important participants in the American Civil War.
