This was also the last census to deal with the awful blight of slavery.
You will see that in this census the listing of races and free Blacks, Slaves, Indians and also Chinese. It is chilling to see this was the norm only 150 years ago.
My name is Jack Stanley, I have studied history for many years. This blog is about history in a more raw view, not over done. I often use original materials to bring a historic event or story to life or an interview I may have done with the person mentioned. If you cook a vegetable too long it loses much. The same can be said of many histories. They are the history of the history written before it. Over done history. THIS IS HISTORY IN THE RAW. Comments send to firstname.lastname@example.org
