Synopsis/Details: 

Abolition is equal parts historical drama, thrilling revenge, and somber tragedy. Eton Greene, a plantation slave and his family are freed by abolitionists, and are given the option to escape to Canada. Instead, Eton makes the impossible decision to send his wife and child north without him, and takes up arms alongside the men who freed him. Together they wage a guerrilla war against the local pro-slavery population, freeing other slaves and murdering their owners.

Eton is introduced to the historic character, John Brown. Inspired by his fiery passion for total emancipation immediately, Eton joins Brown’s plot to overthrow the Virginia State Government and spur a mass slave insurrection. The plan: recruit sympathetic white men and freed slaves to perform an assault on Harper’s Ferry, the largest Armoury in Confederate Virginia.

The Fun Stuff! Ancient myths, tall tales and ghost stories - Lore and lies. Fascinated by every language in the world and endeavoring to pick at least one up before I die. My cats will tell you I sing too loudly and dance terribly, though I would advise you not to believe them as both are notorious liars. Country, hip-hop, disco, soul, grunge, pop, rock and everything in between. My favourite hobby is laughing until I cry and my goal is making others do the same. When I’m not hunched over a computer you can find me hunched over other things, such as books, a guitar, or antlers that deer are kind enough to leave on the ground. In short I have developed a mighty hunch which I have been told... Go to bio
