The Instructive Story of Uncle Ned

Sunday, November 16, 2014

From a First Reader for good Confederate schoolchildren published in 1863. When we found this reader published in the short-lived Confederacy, we immediately went looking for the story that would teach the dear children how good and reasonable the system of slavery was. We knew it had to be in there somewhere, and we were right.
