The Civil War Essay, Research Paper

History Reflection

Coons, darkies, boys. These are just a few of the incredibly insulting names that you could hear whites calling the black slaves in any of the Southern or Northern states during the 1850Os to the 1860Os. My Grandmother was raised in Missouri in the 1930Os. She has had a lot of experience in the way that whites treated there slaves at that time. She told me that once when she was about thirteen years old here father came home and told here family that one of the neighbors up the street took two of his slaves down to the dike shot both of them in the back of the head and through them it to the river.

The book was a fictional story about a black slave man named Uncle Tom and the different people he slaved for. In the end of the story he is sold to Simon Legree, who has him lashed to death by Sambo, one of Simons other slavers.
