  • Working
  • I was a slave when someone sold me and my family on the streets. The man took us for $25 and we went with him. He was strict. He beat us for not working hard and showing late to work.
  • Escaping
  • Life as a slave was miserable and hard. We would barely got food, and we never got breaks.
  • Civil War
  • We worked at 4:00 in the morning until it was too dark to see. We picked cotton day by day, picking the seeds, seed by seed.
  • Freedom
  • I had the idea to leave. I was tired being a slave. Me and my family sneaked out when our master forgot to unlock the door. We thought it was a trap, but it wasn't. We quietly went out the door. We hid anywhere we could. The North Star guided the way.
  • The civil war then began. I was very anxious but I knew everything would be right in the end. I didn't give up and sometimes me and my family hid with the abolitionists. They were the people who didn't believe in slavery, so I knew I could trust them.
  • Slavery was now illegal and we can finally have the rights we deserve!
