Review

It was 1863 and Thomas and his little sister left the farm where they were born and raised as slaves. Looking for North Star and freedom they soon see a Union soldier. Corporal Henry Green brings Thomas and Birdie back to his base, and suddenly it feels like they've found a new home. Now they don't have to find their way north alone-they're marching with the army.
