Freedom's Sons Volume One - Online

I recently completed the first two sections of the fifth Northwest independence novel, which has been entitled Freedom’s Sons. This latest novel will detail the lives and progress of three families through the first fifty years of the existence of the Northwest American Republic.

There is a Prologue that takes up where The Brigade left off, at the battle of Portland. The next section is entitled “After the Fire,” in which the first year after the Longview Treaty is discussed. Then comes the second section, called “The Empire Strikes Out,” which tells us of Operation Strikeout, twelve years after Longview, when the United States attempts to re-conquer the Northwest by force. These two are the only sections completed thus far, and because of their length they will be published together as Volume One. Sections Three through Five will comprise Volume Two.

I am publishing this first volume right away on the internet, including distributing copies for free in .pdf format, because due to the usual financial strictures actual paper book publication is still some ways off. I want to make sure that if anything happens to me of either a medical or a legal nature, this novel does not end up just sitting on my hard drive, either because I am in no condition to distribute it or because the said hard drive from my computer is locked away in a plastic tub in the basement evidence room of some federal bureaucracy.

Freedom’s Sons may be read online or downloaded in .pdf format from:

Hello Harold,

I find it confusing that after years the US could still be a viable threat to the Homeland. I thought the US would be on the same level or even lower of present day Zimbabwe? If the Homeland wanted to keep the US at bay all that would be needed would for the Homeland to offer to buy all the scrape copper wire in the US at a premium. Everything in the US would grind to a halt in no time.

But today in the real world I got a taste of life in this Obamanation. I contracted to have new windows and a front door installed. Today a 3 man crew all white completed about 80% of the job and then took a 15 minute break in their truck parked at the curb. While there 4 niggers all with guns robbed them. I couldn't believe it! Of course they got away. The cops did drive around the block a couple of times to try to catch them. Just another day in the paradise of Obamaland. The Homeland is no longer an alternative suggestion, it is a necessity!

Was there a section left out? Near the end of the volume there is a list of decorations awarded during the war. A husband and wife by the last name of Mcdowell are mentioned, but I don't recall anything written about them elsewhere. The name doesn't come up in a text search (maybe they were characters in another novel?).

It's also mentioned that Eli and Tommy were decorated, but not how that came about.

Just curious.

I've finished reading about 1/3 of it since yesterday, every bit as "can't put it down" gripping as the first four novels. Another BRILLIANT work, HAC!

There is too much interest in him among readers, and it's a bit unhealthy, in my view. Every war produces Quantrills and Oglevies, but these books are supposed to be more than just Rambo-like revenge fantasies for racist Comic Book Guys.

i just finished my reading, an i have one word: excellent.

I have a little critic about the economic approach of the Republic's economy, do you know the works of Adam Muller, Adolf Wagner and Friedrich List?

Excellent!!! One small problem with the book that requires your attention, though. It appears that the first name of Bagwell was changed for some reason during the writing of the book somewhere between the draft and its current version, but Mr. Bagwell is still identified inconsistently as "Marcus Bagwell" and as "Marlon Bagwell" in different parts of the book's current version. You might want to rectify that small inconsistency using the "Find / Replace" editing command in your publishing software to change all references to Mr. Bagwell to reflect whichever first name was the one intended to be used in the final version.

Thanks for the Bagwell tip. It has been corrected on the original and so for the final publication, whenever that may be, but too late to chase down all the .pdfs etc.

The hell of it is that you are the first to notice that little senile slip of mine. The manuscript was proofed repeatedly by me and by several others and yet nobody picked up on it, but by the same token, few will notice it as they read it. Let's face it, White literacy levels simply aren't what they used to be.

Actually, there was something else I noticed about Volume 1, something conspicuously absent. I was hoping there would be some mention on Mary Ellen "Ellie" McGee, Kicky's daughter, who I would guess would be about 17 or 18 at the time when the NAR defeated Operation Strikeout. Hopefully there will be some mention in Volume 2 of her whereabouts and of Jimmy & Lavonne Wingo and their family.
