Sunnyside was a 3000 acre plantation in the southeast corner of Arkansas. The history of this piece of property is the history of the cotton industry in the south, as it transitioned from single plantation to multiple plantations, from farmers to share croppers. The writer sums it up with "the history of Sunnyside offers a revealing glimpse of the important events...that shaped cotton agriculture in the lower south for 100 years."

Great information, My grandmother was raised up thru here. She was born there in1897.
Wonderful history.

Fabulous true story about the Italian immigrants .. They were promised so much, but ended up basically as slaves.. Their ancestors are now in the area mentioned and most became land owners when they were finally helped by a priest from North Arkansas and a US senator.. Great story of hardships, perseverance of a proud people..

This book arrived on time in new condition. The book is a very good read! I am from Greenville, MS but never knew this happened just across the river. Gives lots of details. I'm very pleased.
Mr.jeka
Some of our family was in Sunnyside when they first immigrated. It is good to see where they went and what the conditions were.

I've been looking for this book for 20+ years. I understand that my family, rather than experience the hardship and humiliation of coming through Ellis Island, had the good fortune to be hired onto the Sunnyside Plantation in Lake Village, Louisiana. The Reginelli family was accompanied by a priest who was the liaison between the 100 families and the businessman who owned Sunnyside. They worked off their passage and moved on to Pine Bluff, AR where they did well in cotton.
