Negro Village in Georgia

Description

This image shows a row of slave houses with children playing in front and adults engaged in various activities, including driving oxcarts. The illustration accompanies a discussion of events preceding the Civil War and what transpired in Georgia, but the illustration, which apparently is based on an artist's imagination, is not discussed in the text.
