What a valuable resource. These are always hard to read, you can only get so far without turning into a puddle. The famous narratives are tough enough- Frederick Douglas's account of having to crawl to a trough for food as a child- a child- is searing for instance. I don't know. Force myself to read them anyway. If we don't bear witness to History it's not History, it's just what we want to hear.

Agree they are valuable resource, no one answered my last question, but in Missouri slave narratives the ex slaves complaining about the behavior and violence in the non slave generation was fairly common, still wonder if it was ion other states as well
