The compelling, hidden story of Cathy Williams, a former slave and the first woman to ever serve in the US Army.
"Here's the first thing you need to know about Miss Cathy Williams: I am the daughter of a daughter of a queen and my Mama never let me forget it." Cathy Williams was born and lived a slave until the Union army came and destroyed the only world she had ever known. Separated from her family, she makes the impossible decision: to fight with the Buffalo Soldiers disguised as a man. With courage and wit, Cathy must not only fight for her survival and freedom in the ultimate man's world, but never give up on her mission to find her family, and the man she loves"-- Adapted from publisher description.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Recommended by Sue, Cedarville Community Library: "Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen is based on the true story of Cathy Williams, a slave turned Buffalo Soldier.  Astonishing to think that she kept her identity hidden for two years while serving!"

I gave it 4.5 stars because of content. It was a book which made me want to learn more about Cathy Williams. I thought it was a little long in the tooth though.
