Is Freedom To Much To Ask For

By Garrett Mcbeth
Civil War Reporter


I understand why the south wants slavery , but they must understand slavery is just inhuman , if you were a slave and you were beaten if you looked at your master wrong , forced to do work tirelessly , you have a new baby boy and he doesn't even get to be a child instead a slave , judge by his skin color and has to do work or be beatin . Now just think about what it like looking out the eyes of someone who has only seen pain. Now will you give them freedom or feel them with the ungodliness of being a slave.
