“The Fiddling Contest” is a true old family story transcribed by Ellen Gray Taylor, who had heard the brave story of Mars Henry in the words of the ex-slave who told it to her and to so many other children. Rendered in the vernacular, this story depicts the great love shown within an extended family trying to ensure survival in the dark days after the War Between the States.
