This book is about Frederick Douglass
"Caught in the Rebel Camp: Introducing Frederick Douglass" plunges readers into the heart of the Civil War, a time rife with conflict and a fervent quest for justice. Through the eyes of young Danny Sims, an eager yet physically limited boy who dreams of joining Frederick Douglass’s all-black regiment, the Fifty-Fourth Massachusetts Infantry, readers experience the struggles and triumphs of those fighting for racial justice. Unable to enlist due to his age and disability, Danny finds purpose as the caretaker of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw’s horses, a role that unexpectedly positions him as a crucial player in the war. An unforeseen adventure behind enemy lines provides Danny with critical information that could change the course of the battle, testing his courage and determination. This engaging narrative not only highlights the contributions of African American soldiers in the Civil War but also promotes an understanding of resilience and the significant impact one individual can make, regardless of physical limitations. Ideal for elementary school readers, this book serves as a compelling introduction to the legendary social justice leader Frederick Douglass and the broader theme of racial justice. Published on October 5, 2016, it encourages young readers to reflect on history and their capacity to contribute to justice today.
