A plantation owner and the slaves who tolerated or hated him...the unadorned Antebellum South.
A lyrical read-aloud story
Fun for all ages

Our trip to 1857 began with a carriage and ended with one. We traveled by train, stagecoach and carriage to St. Helena Island, South Carolina. Despite tobacco spit, smut and smoke, water soaked floorboards, and waiting at stations, we arrived for a visit with Thomas Chaplin and his family. The wife of our host got sick and we returned home to Lexington, all in less than an hour. My thanks to Amanda Ballenger for the above photo.
