Add to, agree, disagree with this response in 50 words or more. You can pick one question or more to respond to.Also, if you’re wondering, this is the link they are referring to: https://www.gwu.edu/~folklife/bighouse/index.html1. What did you learn about the world of slavery and the plantation that you didn’t know after reading Foner? What seems especially noteworthy, shocking, odd?What I didn’t know after reading Foner was that the plantations were like small towns because they had more than just a big house and slave quarters like the exhibit said “The yard adjacent to the planter’s house by itself resembled a small plantation. Here were located a range of different outbuildings including, at the very least: a kitchen, well, dairy, ice house, smokehouse, laundry, and quarters for house servants. It is no wonder then that both enslaved occupants and visitors said that plantations resembled small towns.” what I found noteworthy yet  slightly odd was that some families lived in separate houses that were under the same roof on the plantations.2. List three (3) items (a photo, story, quote, etc.) that you feel are significant. Then, for each item, taken separately, discuss why you believe this item is important.The Slave Quarters at the E. Sterling Robertson, Jr. ranch, in Bell County, Texas. I Believe This Photo is important because it helps visualize what the slave quarters looked like and what their way of life must have been like.Another Item I found significant was a Quote by a former slave named Henry James Trentham who described a plantation near Camden, South Carolina,”The slave houses looked like a small town and there was grist mills for corn, cotton gin, shoe shops, tanning yards, and lots of looms for weaving cloth. Most of the slaves cooked at their own houses that they called shacks. . . . There was a jail on the place for to put slaves in. . .” I found this Quote important because Henry described basically what life was like for slaves on the plantation he was a slave on. One more item that I found important is another quote by a former slave named Mary Ella Grandberry from Colbert County, Alabama. “There was a lot of cabins for the slaves, but they wasn’t fitten for nobody to live in. We just had to put up with them.” Mary’s quote really helps depict how small the living quarters were for many slaves despite the fact there was a lot of cabins on the plantations. 3. What further questions do you still have about the plantation/slavery experience? What is still confusing?  Why was there so many buildings on a plantation was it really like a town?
