This is so touching and I'm sure it happened many times after the civil war.

You are a wonderful storyteller and this is spot on topic.

Well done.
Very interesting story. You made the good point that many of the freed slaves just didn't know or want a different life. They were set in their ways, and some, like this young man, considered his 'masters' family. Well written.
