Rosa, Rebecca and Augusta 1863. Mixed race ancestry. Historic Photographs Of "White" Slaves

A haunting 150-year-old photo found in a North Carolina attic shows a young black child named John, barefoot and wearing ragged clothes, perched on a barrel next to another unidentified young boy. In April, the photo was found at a moving sale in Charlotte, accompanied by a document detailing the sale of John for $1150.00 not a small sum in 1854.
