Patrick & Me: A Family Saga of The Underground Railroad

chronicles the journey of Anthony Cohen, a fourth generation descendant of a runaway slave as he follows his ancestor’s route to freedom. Drawing from an 1856 interview with his forbearer, Cohen carefully reconstructs the amazing life story of Patrick Sneed—a slave of African, Jewish, Irish and Cherokee heritage—who fled from bondage in 1849 and later went on to fight in the Civil War.
