I don’t comment on Insitome blog, but I found the figure caption on this blog post hilarious:
“American folkways & American pedigrees”. https://blog.insito.me/american-folkways-american-pedigrees-5e877826cf8e
The figure (from a book it seems) showing a harvest scene has caption “slaves cultivating tobacco in Virginia”. It is clearly sugarcane. I don’t think whoever was that book author or illustrator communicated with each other or knew tobacco and sugarcane fields. 🙂
lol. thanks! i thought it looked strange but i don’t know what tobacco looks like so i took it at face value.
