Life of a Slave Girl -
Harriet Jacobs

Harriet Jacobs
b. 1813; Edenton, NC
d. 3-7-1897; Washington, DC

Harriet Jacobs spent seven years hiding in a crawl space to avoid the advances of her owner and still be close enough to hear the voices of her children, before escaping North. She wrote her autobiography, Incidents in the Life of A Slave Girl, to awaken Northern women to the abuses done to female slaves.

Harriet Jacob quote ~
• “The bill of sale!? Those words struck me like a blow. So I was sold at last! A human being sold in the free city of New York!... I well know the value of that bit of paper, but much as I love freedom, I do not like to look upon it. I am deeply grateful to the generous friend who procured it, but I despise the miscreant who demanded payment for what never rightfully belonged to him or his.”

The quote refers to Cornelia Willis, her employer and friend, buying her freedom for $300 in 1852.

FYI - Jacobs worked as a nurse-maid in the home of literary editor Nathaniel Parker Willis.

Edward Jenner
b. 5-17-1749; England
d. 1-26-1823

Edward Jenner, physician and scientist, is famous for his study of smallpox and the introduction of a vaccine that has eradicated the disease from nature. Jenner noted that the milkmaids who were infected with cowpox, did not succumb to smallpox.

Smallpox was a contagious disease responsible for killing an estimated 60 million Europeans in the 18th century alone, leaving survivors scarred, some infertile, and one third blinded. Smallpox is also believed to be the disease that killed nearly all the Native Americans when the European's "discovered" the New World.
