Two Great Historical Fiction Books!
Aaron Dwight Stevens, a tumultuous, ill-tempered, zealous but noble young man is an often overlooked American hero. Throughout his 29 full years, Stevens acted upon his convictions, adventured near and far, and ultimately awoke the nation to the start of a new chapter in America’s history—the end of slavery.
Through historical facts and fictional flare, authors Vic Butsch and Tommy Coletti resurrect the story of a true 1800s adventurist and legend. In this gripping novel, readers will thrill to riveting tales of Stevens’s journey through the Mexican War, the Dragoons, Bloody Kansas, his love for two women, and the destined collision at Harpers Ferry. Paired with the emotional credence of Stevens’s beliefs and his unwavering devotion to his fellow abolitionists, A Journey to the Gallows brings history to life in a most entertaining way.
A petition has been submitted to the State of Virginia that Aaron Dwight Stevens should be pardoned for the crime for which he was convicted of and hung for. As of September, 2019 the results are pending. Read More…
