C.P. Hicks – Internal Conflict

“There are no words which can fully express or explain the real condition of my people throughout the South, nor how deeply and keenly they feel the necessity of fleeing from the wrath and long pent-up hatred of their old masters which they feel will ere long burst loose like the pent-up fires of a volcano and crush them if they remain here many years longer.”2
