Review--The Slaves' Gamble: Choosing Sides in the War of 1812

The Slaves' Gamble: Choosing Sides in the War of 1812 - Gene Allen Smith

Excellent history of an overlooked part of American history and US/British conflicts. I knew about the Patriot War in Spanish Florida, and the role Blacks, Seminoles and Maroons played in driving back invading American forces, but I wasn't familiar with many of the other events involving slaves and free Blacks during the War of 1812.

 

This is a valuable addition to any writer researching The War of 1812 for novels.
