This is the approach to Drayton Hall, a large slave owning plantation in South Carolina. There has been minimal restoration so you can see it in its original splendor. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drayton_Hall (4 years and 209 days ago)
Thank you for the historical background, appreciated. What a sad history you have. I will now wikipedia this site. It is too bad that an earthquake, then a storm levelled the two flank buildings. Very interesting read and it would be fascinating to visit this building. I also like the way you presented this upload, has a flavour of romanticism to it.
Thanks. Yes, it was a very interesting place, but also permeated by a sadness. For example, there are bricks on the inside walls that weren't up to the quality standards to be seen from the outside because you could see the indentations in them made by the fingers of the 5 year olds that were forced to make them. There was a bunch of stuff like that.
Did you have a guide or did you see those little fingerprints yourself? In some parts of the world, you will continue to see child's hands labouring....sad to say.
We had a guide that told the history of the area and that plantation. She also pointed out a lot of details like the finger marks. Yes, it is VERY sad that things like this still happen today.
