This tale of slave life on a Louisiana estate at Christmastime is a spirited and pathetic story written by Metta Victoria Fuller Victor, one of the most famous women writers of the day. Originally published in 1861, it was translated into many languages and President Lincoln is said to have called it, "... as absorbing as Uncle Tom's Cabin." It also helped galvanize British sympathy for the Northern cause.
