American Badass Robert Smalls

Robert Smalls was good at what he did, so good that he was eventually faced with a dilemma. He could risk his life -and the lives of his family and crew- in a complicated scheme that could go wrong at any second. Or he could sit out the war and possibly spend the rest of his life as a slave. After meticulous preparations, he jumped at a sudden opportunity with no room for error.
