    This is disgraceful. My slaves have much better looked after quarters.

    I hate that “where I at least I know I’m free” played in my head after reading that. Especially given the context.

    Probably want to contact a state or federal historian so they can document and photograph this.

    Don’t be ashamed of what your ancestors did.
