Beschreibung:

Early African Americans in Sumner County, both slaves and free, left a legacy not only of beautiful brick buildings and sturdy stone fences, but also a social history as rich and varied as the many tribes they represented. This exciting book is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the immeasurable contributions, undeniable services, and the devotion of black Americans to the evolution of Sumner Countyas communities. Many of the sienna-hued photographs and Civil Waraera tintypes presented here were taken when folks wore their Sunday best and didnat smile for the camera. These images, many never before published, capture everything from a acreek baptisma and bonnet worn by a local slave, to views of families and schoolchildren. The volume covers most of the early settlements in Sumner County where African Americans largely resided, from
Rockland and Avondale to Scattersville, Parkeras Chapel, and Gallatin.
