Amistad: The Story of a Slave Ship This illustrated chapter book for younger readers tells the dramatic true story of the Amistad, the ship which became a celebrated symbol of rebellion against the slave trade. A group of Africans who freed themselves and took control of the ship were taken into custody in New Haven after their vessel was intercepted off the eastern seaboard. Their cause became a rallying point for the Abolitionists, and after a long legal battle they were restored to freedom and able to return to Africa.
