Format: Paperback
The dominant figure in this Southern family history is a man called Francis Griffin. Griffin deserves to be much better known to all historians of the South and the Civil War. A hugely successful cotton-planter, with large numbers of slaves, Griffin was opposed to the idea of Southern secession. When the war began he hoped against hope that it would never penetrate as far as Mississippi. When Northern troops finally arrived he struggled to hold together his family, his house, his business, his cotton crop, and everything he was responsible for. An individual life shows us the real meaning of history. No other member of the Griffin family is as fascinating as Francis, but Mary Helen Halloran's account of her Mississippi family will fascinate readers everywhere.

I enjoy reading about the lives of others in early Mississippi. This book is excellent reading and gives good information about the people that lived in Mississippi early on.

Format: Paperback
I wonder what Frances would think of John Edward Griffin family that relocated to Pointe Coupee Parish with African American wife who had a white father. I guess that part of the story will never be told. It is so funny when we went to Greenville to bury my Great Aunt in the yard of the family church and their were white people in the back of the church. When we left the church my uncle show us where his father was raised which was the Griffin Plantation. My sisters and I got out of the car and took pictures of our last name written on the gates at the entrance. I quest we will never be invited in those gates.
