Jacob Stroyer, an African-American former slave, was born on the Kensington Plantation in Eastover, South Carolina in 1846 or 1849. Stroyers father, Jacob was born in Sierra Leone and captured to America as a youth. In a quote from the Preface byMoreJacob Stroyer, an African-American former slave, was born on the Kensington Plantation in Eastover, South Carolina in 1846 or 1849.

Stroyers father, Jacob was born in Sierra Leone and captured to America as a youth. In a quote from the Preface by E.C. Bolles: In this book Mr. Stroyer has given us, with a most simple and effective realism, the inside view of the institution of slavery. It is worth reading, to know how men, intelligent enough to report their experience, felt under the yoke. The time has come when American slavery can be studied historically, without passion, save such as mixes itself with the wonder that so great an evil could exist so long as a social form or a political idol.

The time has not come when such study is unnecessary- for to deal justly by white or black in the United States, their previous relations must be understood, and nothing which casts light on the most universal and practical of those relations is without value today. I take pleasure, therefore, in saying that I consider Mr. Stroyer a competent and trustworthy witness to these details of plantation life.
