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

The Slaves' Gamble: Choosing Sides in the War of 1812The Slaves' Gamble: Choosing Sides in the War of 1812 by Gene Allen Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.
