Yosemite... detailed early description!

Freed slaves taught to be self-sufficient... account told by African American woman...



Item # 600273 THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY, New York, May & June, 1864 (a two-issue set)

* St. Helena Island - freed slaves taught to become self-sufficient
* Life on the Sea Islands", by African American Charlotte Forten - historic
* The incredible history of Candice Glover's (American Idol contestant) home island off the coast of South Carolina
* Yosemite - a detailed description nearly decades before becoming a National Park


This two-issue set contains multi-page accounts of both a visit to Yosemite (now Yosemite National Park) and St. Helena island (along with other small islands off the South Carolina coast)... among the first victories of the north which provided for the earliest emancipation of American slaves. It is interesting to note that the account of the latter is told by Charlotte Forten, a free African American woman from a prominent family from Philadelphia, who joined the effort to help teach the former slaves how to be self-sufficient. This two-issue set provides the first printing of her detailed account - quite historic. See images for full details of both accounts.

Complete in over 250 pages and in very good condition. Note: If ordering folders or other storage solutions, please order one for each issue.
