    Document Overview:
    The diaries of Sadie Stringer, including her 1896 journey from Ontario to Fort McPherson, the Mackenzie Delta, and Herschel Island, her life at McPherson from 1896-97, at Herschel Island from 1897-1901, and home in Ontario the next year. Sadie had trained as a stenographer (and worked as such in New York) and as a nurse, which gave her skills she often used in the North. She taught school to Inuit and whalers at Herschel Island, managed her household, took an active part in mission work, and hosted numerous Inuit (who were fed at the mission when they arrived at the island with their furs, as the mission was also a trade post). She engaged several Inuit women as helpers with her chores and in looking after her young children (the first born in 1897, the second two years later), which caused jealousy and almost led to violence. On a number of occasions, sometimes for months on end, she handled many functions, including the Sunday services, when her husband was ill. When he was away on long journeys she ran the mission and fur trade post at Herschel Island with the help of her bachelor uncle Will Young, who had come to the North with her.

    Beyond the Lines: or A Yankee Prisoner Loose in Dixie

    $4.46

    Document Overview:
    The author narrates the suffering he endured as a prisoner in the Southern Confederacy. After being captured at the battle of Shiloh, Geer was tried on the most frivolous charges and subsequently chained with slaves' chains and cast into military prisons and common jails. He managed to escape, overcoming malarious marshes and bloodhounds only to be recaptured. In regard to the workings and results of that system of human bondage known as slavery there have been so many mistaken ideas, statements and theories, that it has become the duty of every true and loyal man to expose the truth; or to strip from the hideous skeleton of Slavery all its gaily painted and deceptive cloaks and masks, and to exhibit it in all its ghastly repulsiveness. -- J.
