Hello! My name is Margaret. This is my husband Jhon. He is the owner of the plantation we live on.
This is my house. I make sure everyday that my slaves are working hard to grow crops.
Come'on kids! Time to eat!
This room is where I set the table and prepare to eat for our family. I do much preparing and cleaning around here.
Yay! Were hungry!
Women make the beds and clean the house. I made this bed in the morning.
Every day I wash the laundry using the washboard. The washboard helps me scrub the stains out of the clothes. A lot of elbow grease has to go into that! Then I put it into the drawers in the proper rooms.
Oh how tiring it is doing the laundry!
I take Charlotte with me to go to the town shops. We pick out colors for clothing to give to the seamstress.
She makes me beautiful dresses!
It is so unfair how women do not get to vote. We are part of our community I believe we should get a say! I imagine this is what the meeting house looks like.
