Abraham Galloway, Spy for the Union

Spy for the Union

While we remember Black leaders of the Civil War and Reconstruction Era like Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman, many others are largely forgotten. An indisputable hero who risked his life spying on behalf of the Union, Abraham Galloway was, in his time, one of the most dynamic and popular of the Black Southern leaders. The History Guy recalls the remarkable life of an escaped slave who fought for the future of his people.
