Stories of the Old South

Copyright Bonnie Stanard

A plantation owner and the slaves who tolerated or hated him...the unadorned Antebellum South.

DID YOU KNOW THAT IN THE 19TH CENTURY:


Doctors sometimes unknowingly prescribed poison

Slaves buried their dead at night

Mourning for two years was expected of a widow
Graveyard dirt was used in conjuring

Of 100 slaves who survived infancy, 46 died before the age of 20
