Well I'm gonna roll the dice again and post more information from family records,
This post shows the weekly food allowance for the slaves owned by an ancestor.
I can see it now - a Yankee blogger crying / " But what did the owners eat"?
"What type of home did the owners have as compaired to the slaves"?
Yea I guess that's fair / but what do the CEOs of major companys have for dinner as opposed to the guy in the mail room? And what about living conditions ?
