A pleasing picture of plantation life in Mississippi before the Civil War, and an attempt to preserve something of the manners, customs and deeds of that time. As in many Southern writings soon after the Civil War, the history of the “Old South” which included slavery is often painted as an idyllic setting rather then a realistic portrait of that time. That is true in this portrayal we bring to you at Mississippi Genealogy. Please realize that the latitude with which a writer has is expansive, and this author took such liberties to heart, as he readily admits within the work.
