The Photo Journal
The photo journal shows the “real” lives of these early settlers. The over 600 historical images illustrates the lives of the settlers, in their truest form. The Historical Imagery Recovery and Restoration Process were done by Joseph Roy (Roytek Technology Solutions) of Madison, Wisconsin.
The images portray the settler’s lives in over a period of one hundred plus years—from the 1830s to 1960s and beyond. Through these lenses we see how the settlers dealt with life during crucial periods in history: Slavery, Jim Crow, migration to the North, resettling, The Depression, World Wars I and II, and the Civil Rights movement, and how family, church and other community activities help to sustain life for them.
