This was a very informative article. For my various projects in class this will be very useful. The way that the article was written, by breaking up the things that we have gained from the Civil War, was very easy to comprehend.
This article wasn't really written by a journalist but it was very well written for the time that they say it was written.
This was a very interesting story to read. It was very cool to see the differences between blacks and whites at the time. I thought this was an overall good story and opened by eyes to things that I would have never known before. I didnt know the former slaves would still talk with their masters after slavery was abolished.
Very good from a history standpoint. The story was very long. The "so what" didn't come until the very end. Where is the painting now? Will it have anything done to it for the 150 anniversary?
I actually learned a lot from this article but I would like to know more. What about the painting now? Since it was written this year, the year of the 150th anniversary, I would have liked to know if anything was being done with it now.
