An amazing and insightful treasure trove of history is present within William Johnson's Natchez. This tome is the antebellum—pre-Civil War—diary of a freed African American. William Johnson's life is extraordinary in that he was a landowner, moneylender, and, seemingly contradictorily enough, a slave owner.
This book will provide you with a first-hand account of what life in the middle of the 19th century was like, as well as challenge a number of preconceptions you may have had about the American South before the Civil War.
Featuring a new introduction by William L. Andrews, this tome is a unique look at a unique free man, who history will not soon forget.
