    You see, if it wasn't for Ma, Pa would have gone north over the Ohio River when he bought his freedom. I guess I was pretty badly hurt. It was raining hard, like the whole world was crying because a good man had died. Strange thing was that if Pa had still been Massa Washburn's slave they'd have been fined Pa's full value of fifteen hundred dollars. He worked for near on to twenty years, never spending even two bits on himself come Sundays.

    They laughed; one of them got some chains and said, Freeman or not, you're a good-looking nigger and we'll get two thousand dollars for you down in Mississippi. The book, by the author of the Lost Regiment series, is exceedingly well researched; however, Sam's character is unconvincing in vernacular and circumstance. The day they learn that there is a world beyond their front door, a world not of smiles and laughter and love, but sometimes of darkness, and fear, and cold, evil things that twist through our souls. Because lyrics can be distracting, I reserve music with lyrics for times when we can focus on the words.

    I don't really remember that much; a lot of what I think I remember is stuff my ma and others must have told me later. At least Pa wouldn't have to buy their freedom as well. Up to Chapter 7, the story is written in a smooth narrative style, but as soon as you reach Chapter 7, it consists entirely of long excerpts from letters with brief summaries from the author. They were, after all, born to it, they live with it, and they die comfortable in it. You see, even though we bled with them and died with them, it seems now they don't quite want us marching with them.

You get a bit older, marry, have children, start a job, and then one day you turn around and there is gray in your beard and a slowness in your step. I was learning just how the world really was that spring morning.

And I saw that my ma was awful scared, her eyes wide, and she was wringing her apron up into knots of worrying. Sam and his cousin Jim assault Ben in self-defense; believing him dead, they take flight and, with a bounty on their heads, eventually make it to Indiana.

Ma started into crying and he held her, making hushing sounds. At least, that's the name I go by now. I don't think even Preacher Wilson knows the answer to that one.

The Music Connection

My students' scores on our state social studies assessment showed that they learned required content about the Civil War; 96 percent of them met or exceeded state standards. When students listened to music as they wrote, words moved more directly out of their hearts and minds and onto the page.

She picked me up and shook me till it felt like my head was about to burst and I couldn't see all too well.

Sad thing was that there wasn't just Ma after I came along and so he was going to have to buy me too. Pa was a big and powerful man and afraid of nothing. It was sad; Ma would cry anytime their names were mentioned, though I don't recall it since I was only three when it happened.
