I can’t believe that 49% of people in Miss. owned slaves most people could not even feed their families now I’m supposed to believe 1/2 of them could afford to own slaves . This must be a number’s thing. We all know numbers don’t lie but liers sure can figure. If this is true I stand corrected!!! Thank you for providing research. I will look further.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
