    Back wages minus all that room and board. Assuming he was well fed during all that time.

    Sorry if I sound like Paula Dean!

    From yesterday – Larry was the first to answer correctly and then the others figured out the rest. He was born in 1800 in Virginia (Carton made me remember this riddle) and died in 1900 in West Virginia as the state split during the Civil War. The president was Lincoln (not Kennedy as many assume) as the vice president was Andrew Johnson.

    you mean other than the fact that a person born in Virginia was born in a Commonwealth rather than a state?

    There’s no legal difference between a state and a commonwealth, it’s just what a state wants to call itself. The US Constitution, which establishes the USA, refers only to states, so if a state wants to call itself a commonwealth, fine, but it’s still a state.

    “Sam, you have to stay. Without you, I’ll have to pay someone wages and this slavery situation had been a really good deal for me.”

    Prisoners are rarely charged for room and board when they are released.

    W. Virginia is the only state created by the Civil War I.

    Are you kidding me??! Have you ever seen what slave quarters look like? I am sure his back wages far surpass any charges for room and board. Food was scraps so scrap that.
