Co-authors Diane Abbott and Kristoffer Gair present the fresh and daring journey of Sarah "Emma" Edmonds, the first woman in American history to receive a Civil War pension. Biographical in nature and written in narrative form, Honor Unbound details Emma's traumatic childhood in Canada, her harrowing escape to the United States and the injustices she witnessed that forced her to disguise herself as Franklin Thompson. Posing as a man, she enlisted in the Civil War and served as soldier, nurse and spy for the Union army. Researched thoroughly in two countries, this book reveals the true, kindred spirit of a woman who lived and fought for what she believed in throughout her passionate and often shrouded life.
