The Perfect Steel Trap
Harper's Ferry 1859
What happened during John Brown's Raid
The Perfect Steel Trap is historical fiction based on 24 eyewitnesses and the recollection of each individual. No one has written about the seven raiders who got away. Some of the recognizable eyewitnesses are Thomas Floyd and several of Brown's men.
Catesby has been called the "the Forest Grump" of the Civil War. Catesby, a blacksmith and slave to Lewis Washington, great grand-nephew of George Washington. Catesby was captured by John Brown in his raid on Harpers Ferry. Catesby is a real man whom I put in real situations so he can tell you what happened there. One of those places is on a wagon driving Alexander Gardner, a photographer at Antietam battlefield. Another of those real places is Andersonville Prison.
Catesby is part of a Trilogy -- other two are Return of Catesby and Catesby The Final Chapter
