“My race needs no special defense, for the past history of them of them in this country proves them to be the equal of any people anywhere. All they need is an equal chance in the battle of life.” – Robert Smalls, 1895

Congressman Robert Smalls, an escaped slave who went onto write the first legislation for a free public school education accessible to all children in the United States, always confronted his fear for the sake of making America a better place for all.

In 1862, while America was at war with itself over the issue of slavery, ship pilot and slave Robert Smalls, pressed into service of the Confederacy, saw an opportunity for the birth of freedom. Escaping aboard the steamboat with his enslaved crewmen and their families was a daunting task. A single mistake under the watchful eyes of the watchmen manning the deadly forts would’ve had deadly consequences.

Robert defied the odds and became a national symbol of freedom for blacks and whites in the north. This educational supplement will make inspiring reading for children as they are introduced to the first Civil War hero. They will learn of his journey in convincing President Abraham Lincoln to allow blacks to enlist in the war effort and his engagements in battle for Union forces that culminated in his rise as the first black Captain of a Navy vessel.

The theme of facing fear and conquering it is an inspiring story of a little known hero who made a difference to better the lives of others. It is abundance in his pursuits while in public service and sends a message that dreams can be fulfilled by confidence and commitment.

Appropriate text for grade levels 2 to 5, historical images, and illustrations provides a sound introduction to subject. Also features include a table of contents, maps, glossary, guided reading questions, and additional resources. This fun and informative supplement adheres to common core standards will make a fine addition to classroom curriculum.
