Summary
Photocopy of a microfilmed copy of a typescript of an interview. Baugh was interviewed by Mary A. Hicks in 1937 as part of the Federal Writer's Project for the Works Progress Administration. The item includes handwritten corrections. Baugh tells stories as related by her mother who was a slave. Alice claims that life under slavery was a happy and prosperous time. She says that slaves cried from sorrow when emancipated and that they sang, "We'll hang Abe Lincoln on de Sour Apple Tree." She obviously confuses the song which mentions Jefferson Davis not Abraham Lincolen. She claims that the novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin" is untrue and the cause of the Civil War
