Enslaved House Servants and White Children, South Carolina, 1863
Caption, Domestic Life in South Carolina--from a sketch by our special artist. This illustration (which also shows the white children playing with a black child), the ILN article reports, represents the old Negro servants of the planter's family among his children . . . . The children of the [white] family grow up among the Negro domestic servants, and often learn to regard them with as much affection as they show their own parents (p. 552).
