Harry's Writings

It’s January 1779 when their ship makes landfall in Spanish Louisiana. Stand beside them as they brave the chilly winds and early morning fog leaning against the railing as the ship enters mouth of the Mississippi River—the first river they have ever seen. Within months of their arrival, these young soldier-settlers help drive the British from the Mississippi River Valley ensuring victory for the American colonies.

Harrison brings to life three generations—ordinary people—whose lives are entangled with the extraordinary events of world history. Danger lurked at every turn—every day!

A young man Juan knew only slightly rose from his seat. He stood erect, motionless, and then straightened his well-worn coat. With a firm voice that carried no malice, he said, “My family and my brother’s family have passage to Cuba; we sail in three weeks.” Tears spilled down his cheeks as he tried to contain his emotions. He looked around the room and breathed deeply. “I will carry the memory of Tenerife in my heart forever, and I will always be an Isleño (Islander) as I am today. My forefathers have always tilled the land of others—now we leave the aristocrats their land; let their hands take my plow.”
He remained standing as if he had not fin-ished. Men stared at him in shocked silence until. . .
