Amistad: The Story of a Slave Ship This illustrated chapter book for younger readers tells the dramatic true story of the slave ship, Amistad, which became a celebrated symbol of rebellion against the slave trade. Having freed themselves and taken control of the ship, the group of Africans were taken into custody in New Haven after their vessel was intercepted off the eastern seabord. 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.
