Summary
Louisiana, 1843: a German immigrant thinks she recognizes a young slave girl as the long-lost daughter of her German friend, but the girl has no memory of such a past, and her owner refuses to free her. In novelistic detail, historian John Bailey reconstructs the exotic sights, sounds, and smells of mid-nineteenth-century New Orleans, an "infernal motley crew" of cotton kings, decadent river workers, immigrants, and slaves
Summary
The author examines the boundaries of slave law and identity in the nineteenth century, focusing on the famous case of Salome Muller, a German girl who was reported to have been kidnapped and sold into slavery in New Orleans
