Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Alan Taylor will give a free talk about his new book “The Internal Enemy: Slavery and War in Virginia, 1772-1832″ at noon on Oct. 15 in The Stores Lounge inside the UC Davis Memorial Union.

In his book, Taylor, a UCD professor, tells the story of slaves who paddled out to British warships in 1813, seeking protection for their families and pressuring admirals tasked with punishing Americans for declaring war into also becoming liberators.

The newly freed slaves became what their masters had long feared: “an internal enemy.”

Taylor mixes the voices of the military and political elite with those of civilians and soldiers, revealing previously untold stories of slaves who used war not just to escape and free others, but to strike back by serving as spies, scouts and even soldiers in a combat unit of ex-slaves.
