Philip Reid Saves the Statue of Freedom

Philip Reid Saves the Statue of Freedom

by Steven Lapham and Eugene Walton

Philip Reid was an enslaved African American who volunteered to work with the delicate plaster mold needed to create Freedom, the statue that stands atop the capital building in Washington, D.C. Our new title shares this important story with young readers, and will release just in time to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the completion of the Capital Dome.
