Comments
Captioned, "Negro Village in Georgia," shows row of slave houses, adults engaged in various activities--including driving oxcarts, and children playing. 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.
