Peter Francisco had a stamp issued in his honor and monuments to his name may be found in over three states-- yet many have never heard of the "Hercules of the Revolution". Born to a wealthy family in the Azores Islands in 1760, Peter Francisco was kidnapped at the age of 5 and raised as a slave on a plantation in Virginia. After falling in love with a woman whose life he helped to save, Peter realized he could never marry her unless he was free. Driven with passion for freedom, he joined the Continental Army and he became famous not only for his towering 6'6", 260 lb. stature, but also for his extraordinary strength, bravery, and courage on the battlefield. 330 pages, softcover.
