The Two Faces of Dixie
 

Politicians, Plantations and Slaves

Authored by J. Christy Judah

White Gloves and Lace. Rice Fields and Rags. Plantations and Slaves.
These are the faces of Dixie and they come alive in this factual account of the settlement of eastern North Carolina. The witnesses to the era speak out through actual testimony collected from Last Wills and Testaments, Deeds, Photographs, Sketches, Newspaper Accounts, Court Minutes and Pleas, and personal Slave Narratives. The reader will experience plantation life with its extensive labor demands, a need that was filled by enslaving Indians, whites and Africans. Dixie provides a comprehensive view of life during the pre-civil war era helping the reader to better understand the past and move into the future with a wisdom based in an appreciation for the hardships and dreams of all who bridged the era from slavery to freedom. It lists hundreds of plantations, planters, politicians, and slaves who settled North Carolina, and provides a picture of a by-gone era in a way that no other work has attempted.
