    Sally Creech, more affectionately known as "Aunt Sal" spinning wool at her wheel. For Aunt Sal, spinning and weaving was an artistic & meditative endeavor & she often found solace while losing herself in her labors. Her relaxed smile expresses that this was a time for her to sit & contemplate while practicing her favorite skill. According to her children, whenever she was weaving, “we’d have to go naked…for all the notice she’d take of us, & we’d eat all the peach pie we wanted, for dinner.”

    African slaves were very expensive (50 Sterling). Irish slaves were cheap (no more than 5 Sterling) and most often were either kidnapped from Ireland, or forcibly removed. They could be worked to death, whipped or branded without it being a crime. Many times they were beat to death and while the death of an Irish slave was a monetary setback, it was far cheaper than the death of an expensive African. African slaves were treated much better in Colonial America.
