The Slaves You Never Hear About

Pastor Morecraft, in this lecture, speaks of the Scottish Covenanters who were persecuted for their faith. An astonishing number of these Godly people came to the colonies as slaves. They worked plantations from Virginia to South Carolina. Black Spirituals are based on the same tunes (metre, etc.) these Presbyterians used to sing the Psalms.

The two people groups that have had the biggest impact on the South came as slaves.

Hmm...honestly, I'd never heard of that. Brush-under-rug liberals! Gar!
