slave paper of the week

Dear Brother Jonathan,

I was waiting to be sold and it was almost my turn. I could see the other slaves being sold off in front of me. it was hard to see people getting sold to other people and going away from there family. now its my turn i wanted to run but but i had no choice to say no and run, i had to get sold to a different family. and before me i herd people screaming they were getting a different family than there siblings. when i got separated from my dad i went up in tears because i wanted to be with my dad so i wouldn't be by myself with the other family, but i still ended up alone no matter what i did they would not bye my dad so i wouldn't be by myself and doing all the work my self. and at the house i had to clean up, cook dinner, and do everything there is to do. but then i ran at night and i never got caught because i new some hiding spots that i could camp out in.

The big war

July 4, 1863

Dear Mother

The war that i just experienced was a bloody war. It took place in warren country Mississippi. The confederate lost control of the Mississippi river after the civil war. The confederate took a surprise attack in the spring of 1862. The union victories were taken place at champion hill. That is how the war went down hill and became super bloody.

Love your son

John.
