Re: Slave migration to the West

Thanks - that's very helpful. I have a selection of 100 slave narratives from the WPA project that I'm just starting on, and it has already increased my understanding of that society.
Some mysteries remain, such as the fact that the white adults were outnumbered three to one by their slaves, and they had to cross at least a piece of free soil in Illinois in order to cross the Mississippi at Cape Girardeau. What kept all these people together is difficult to fully understand from our distance.
