Rare Slave Photo Discovered

Photos dating back to the Civil War era are rare; even rarer are photos of slave children. Recently discovered in an attic in North Carolina is a photo of two boys, believed to be between 6-10 years of age. Accompanying the photo was a document which identified one of the boys as John and he sold for $1,150. That is a hefty price tag. In 2010, that translates to around $30,000. The photo is a significant find and should shed some light on the slave trade and childhood slavery.
