Imagine...instead of a lush green landscape of today, a long dusty road stretches to the slave cabins and field beyond.

Bent over cotton plants, under the hot sun with dust-filled air, enslaved people toil day in and day out amidst the odor of sweat and domestic animals. The slaves constant companions are the relentless mosquitoes and flies.

"The weather early this month was unpleasantly hot...here and on all of the Sea Islands where sickness was little known, it has been very sickly - one planter on this River writes my son that he has sixty one cases of fever then on his plantation and there has been eight or ten at a time here..."
George Gibbs,1846
