Synopsis: Excerpt from Personal Memoirs of Major-General D. S. Stanley, U. S. A
In riding over the State of Ohio today, one is struck with the beauty of the farms and the perfect condition of the land, - mellow soil in well levelled field; not a root or a stump to arrest the easy progress of the plow. It was not always so. The first cultivation was done amid stumps, roots and huge deadened trees. The land was very thoroughly grubbed where the plow could run ten feet without meeting stump or root. The plowman was jerked about by the handles of the plow until his motions resembled those of a rope dancer. One could not decide which most needed pity, the soreness of the plowboy or the necks of the wretched horses and oxen. The latter were mostly used for new land as their gait suited better the handling of the plow amongst the roots.
