This storyboard does not have a description.
Hello my name is Benjamin Montgomery and I was born a slave in 1819.
How do you do?
This is my master, Joseph Davis. His children though me to read and write.
Joseph appointed me to run the general store where we sell crops.
I could serve the land, and I knew techniques for flood control. I also invented the propeller for boats.
We went to get the propeller patented but it was denied because a slave created it.
Mr.Davis gave me and my son a loan to have the plantation to make a free black community but the crops didn't grow so the platation was given back to Mr. Davis.
