Another revolution existed in the late 18th-century world, not the familiar movement for independence of the United States or even the French Revolution, but rather the effort for freedom from slavery, opposed by most in the thirteen British colonies that sought independence. Although Africans and African Americans have been left out of most accounts of these momentous years, The Promise of Freedom for Slaves Escaping in British Ships: The Emancipation Revolution, 1740-1807 pieces together their emerging path toward freedom. It concerns their part in the revolution, which advanced from the thriving slave trade to the War for Independence, ending in the abolition of the slave trade throughout the British Empire. To Blacks, this Emancipation Revolution on the part of Britain rang out more loudly than the Declaration of Independence.
Theodore Corbett is a scholar of the American Revolutionary War, an interest that grew during a career in teaching at several universities.

He resides on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
