  • Westfall Slave to King Cotton

    Westfall Plantation, a gray-eyed home of destiny, was dual to the core. It was yoked with the extremes of luxury and poverty. Typical of other plantations on St. Helena Island, its big house was a showcase of symmetry and elegance. By contrast, the slave cabins were clapboard hovels with stick and mud chimneys. Beset with moral contradictions, both owner and chattel were slaves to the crop that ... Read more

  • Westfall, Slave to King Cotton

    Westfall, Slave to King Cotton strays far from Old South nostalgia by giving us a multi-dimensional picture of life on a plantation. It questions the "realities" of what we read about the South of 1858, where an aristocracy was based on race and depended on slavery. We see Westfall's owner Tilmon Goodwyn as a man who didn't create the institution of slavery, but who inherited a belief in it. His ... Read more

    by Mary Stanard ...
    The year 1676 dawned upon troublous scenes in Virginia.
