9781331609599: Crazy the Kid: Or the Cowboy Scout (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Crazy the Kid: Or the Cowboy Scout

I was born on April 23, 1848, in Marion County, Indiana, in a one-room log house on White River, about six miles from what is now Indianapolis. At the age of thirteen I was a boy of great skill and as bad as any boy could be. At this time the Civil War was at a high stage. My father, Richard M.Harmon, enlisted in Company B, 1st Missouri Cavalry, and of course he left home and I thought it was wrong that he should leave. I was the only boy large enough to work and the only child living by his first wife, there being two boys and two girls by his second wife, but they were all too small to be of any help on the farm. I had a very good step-mother, but still thought I was ill treated. My dear reader, do you know that this world is full of foolish boys and girls who don't know when they have a good home or cannot stand good treatment or appreciate any kindness? I was one of that kind of boys. Every boy must sow his wild oats and I sowed mine. In the spring of 1861 father left me at home to plow and plant corn. In our neighborhood there were a lot of negroes who would work for 10 ca night, working all night by the moonlight. I had a leather belt which I prized very highly. I was acquainted with all the negroes, and having the corn stalks to cut, I thought I would if possible hire a negro to work by night. So I went to one of my neighbor's, a negro named Aleck, and according to the agreement we made he went to work at 10 o'clock that night.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Crazy the Kid: Or the Cowboy Scout Father said: Jacob, you go to the cupboard and get some cold grub and set it on the table for your friend. And after I had spread everything in apple-pie order, father says: Sit down there, Jacob, and wait on Aleck. Of course it was not the fashion in those days to wait on any colored person. It was the custom for slave holders to curse and maul and beat them if they did not perform so much labor each day, and hardly allow them to have the Sabbath day on which to rest. Of course they were allowed to go coon or possum hunt. Ing when their day s work was done. You may talk about your good times and your hard times, but the poor Indians had the hardest time of all. Well, I tell you I have lived many years among Indians and among negroes, particularly the Indians, of which I will tell you later on.
