A Southside View of Slavery book. This scarce antiquarian book is included in our special. Below, are some pretty outrageous takes that Adams came away with after spending three months down in the south and, supposedly, getting a real bird’s-eye view on all that is slavery. He saw slaves dressed very sharp in marching bands, choirs, as firemen, slaves in broadcloth suits in church on Sunday morning.

This is not about changing a persons mind in favor of slavery. It gives first hand observations of slavery and views of southerners at that time. Not years later! Right then and there. By broadening your perspective and understanding of slavery you can understand the bigger picture as it relates to our history and where we are now.

This book provides a different perspective on the complex issue of slavery than the overt condemnation of the Old South and its culture which is the cornerstone of modern political correctness. It is not a defense of slavery as an institution. It is, instead, an honest look at the practice at the source, rather than the typical portrayals based on the fictional account in "Uncle Tom's Cabin," which was written by a woman with no direct first hand knowledge of life in the South. The problem had no easy solution, but it was primarily a Southern problem after the North had sold its slaves down South, and one which no Northerner could understand without experiencing it first hand.
All slaves were not miserable tattered wretches and all Southerners were not ruthless Tyrants. The author was surprised to find that most Slaveowners, who were a minority of the Southern population, cared deeply for their slaves. It was a matter of pride that their slaves were happy and well treated. The practice was by most looked on as a necessary evil--a burden from which they would have gladly relieved themselves if a suitable solution could be found. But even if a financially feasible solution could be found, there was also the fear that emancipated slaves, without well thought out long rage planning, would be unprepared for the responsibilities of freedom. When one considers the disproportionately high and growing rates of crime and poverty among African Americans even today, along with the widespread dependence among that race on the government subsidies, it is clear to see that these fears were well founded. Had the slaves been freed by well reasoned planning, by constitutional means, it is likely that most of these problems could have been avoided.

Just like it was described and packaged for protection.

Fast delivery; described accurately.

Wow! This book is an eye-opener! This book was written by Nehemiah Adams in the 1850's. He was a clergy from the North who traveled to the South, and tells what he saw. He was basically shocked and surprised to see the "slaves" were happy, well-dressed, and treated with dignity. Not at all like he thought, and not at all like is being taught in the politically correct version of history. History is supposed to be facts, not fiction or fantasy. And while I'm on the subject, did you know that Uncle Tom's Cabin was strictly a work of fiction? Harriett Beacher Stowe made it up. And, she hadn't even been to the South to know what it was like! Unfortunately, there was no disclaimer written in her book to say this, so people actually believed (and still do believe, unfortunately) what she said and took it as truth!!!
So, if you want to find out for yourself what "slavery" was like in the South (which was really servitude and not slavery), read this eye-witness account and find out. It's time for the truth to be told!

In Regard to Gloria's comment about Harriet Beecher Stowe's book, Uncle Tom's Cabin being "Made up" I would refer you to her book "A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin." The entire book is the background information that Harriet based her book on. It is not an easy read, as it is mentioned as documentation for the other book. It also includes mention of the Abolitionist Delia Webster, Rev. Calvin Fairbanks and their imprisonment for taking the family of escaped slaves Mr. Lewis Hayden, his wife and son, to freedom from Kentucky to Ohio in 1854. Delia Webster went to speaking engagements with Mr. Adams and is mentioned numerous times in newspaper records.
