    One thought on “God Struck Me Dead: Voices of Ex-Slaves”

    1. This book has been in an out of print a number of times since its first printing. The author tracked down and interviewed ex slaves and reprinted large portions of the conversations. If you are interested in the civil war, emancipation of African Americans and history in general, this is well worth it. And, its easy to read. Much of the book is presented as oral history. There are stories good and bad slave masters, daring escapes, comparisons of the attitudes of Union and Confederate soldiers. [...]

    2. This is a fascinating compilation of conversion experiences dictated by X slaves and transcribed in the 1930s. Of particular interest are the six longer autobiographical transcriptions. The inhumanity of slavery is affirmed. At best it was (and is) horrid.
