Now that I am free I can get out of here and start my new life as a freedman. Hopefully we are treated with hugs and not slugs.
You are right you are free but here in the South we have something called the Jim Crow Laws, you might be free but your not equal. Segregation will never end.
You can't vote here. I don't care if you are free. Did you pass the literacy test or pay the poll tax?
No, but I thought under the 15 admendments I was able to vote. Also under the 13 admendment I was free.
Is this the Klu Klux Klan, I heard rumers about these people. If this is real then I better run for my life. Maybe I could make it in time up North if I start running now. I could use the money I got from working on the railroads
I am a freedman that is leaving my farm were I was a slave. I heard the North was a good place to be, but I have no money to get there. I hope the South treats me well.
I thought that I was able to vote? I have never heard of something called the poll tax or literacy test. I was just trying to go vote since I thought that was what us citizens do.
I was so scared because if the rumers were true then they would try and lynch me just because of my race. Up North I heard that there is no segragation. Maybe I could use my money I earned from working on the tracks to take a bus or something
