Defenders of Freedom is the sequel to Guardians of the Gate. The new historical novel takes place primarily between 1907 and 1919 and tells more of the story of the staff and immigrants at Ellis Island, as well as that of the woman suffrage movement. Based on actual events, this book is about people who fought for the rights denied to some by the majority. It is the story of advocates for immigrants, of activists for women’s right to vote, and of one man who, as Commissioner of Immigration for the Port of New York, defied his Washington bosses, and even Congress, to ensure that victims of patriotic hysteria would have due process of law.
