Annotation In 1857, the Supreme Court's Dred Scott decision said African-Americans had no rights. During the Civil War, New Jersey's vocal Copperhead minority agitated to have blacks forced from the state. Despite an atmosphere that treated them at best as second-class citizens, New Jersey's African-American community embraced the Union cause as their own seeing it as their 'war of liberation.' Mr. Bilby has shined a much-needed light on the brave Jerseymen for whom the battle cry 'Liberty and Union' had special significance. Some violence and some strong language. For high school and adult readers.
