Are you trying to say that a whipcracker (a.k.a. "cracker") is a jew?

Well, they did say that only the financially well-off Americans had any slaves. That most people had none.

Regardless, thanks for sharing the art!

Yes, by the nose. St. Louis has many old jewish families that built their wealth on being the 2nd largest slave auction in the country. Just like the majority of slave ships were owned by Jewish companies. I wasn't aware of this 3-4 yrs ago. But when you start reading the Census records' names of slaveholders, and those who actually owned "Dutch" and Portuguese" shipping companies, it's amazing. 45% of jews were slaveholders in early 1800s vs. 2% of whites.

You're welcome. This was the Missouri realist, Bingham, that heavily influenced Hart Benton. http://georgecalebbingham.org/images/Family-Life-on-the-Fr.jpg

Hard to envision huge 30'x15' murals from small pics, but here is a trailer for an educational/history film that a professor/acquintance of mine did that aired on a handful of midwest PBS stations. Rumored that Ken Burns saw some of the raw footage and stole the idea for his acclaimed full length documentary. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RO2wJPebPtk
