Father Comes Home from the Wars - Parts 1,2 & 3 archive"Seems like the worth of a colored man, once he's made free, is less than his worth when he's a slave". West Texas, 1862. Hero, a slave, is promised his freedom if he joins his master in the ranks of the Confederacy against the Union. In a nation at war with itself, he must work against those striving to abolish slavery. The family he leaves behind debates whether to escape or await his return, and they fear that, for Hero, freedom is an empty promise that may come at a great cost. "You know good and well that his Freedom-promise is only ever linked to something bad."
