"a popular poem that appeared in several versions in the black press illustrated this conception of achieving equity through equivalent suffering. a "brave confederate chief" is killed in battle and is carried home to his mother, who greets the death of her only son with "frantic sorrow."
her "aged slave" comes to offer her not consolation but justice. "missus," she declares, "we is even, now." the white mother had sold all ten of her slave's children, so now neither woman has any remaining offspring; the two mothers are alone together in common loss. the mistress must now, in the words of her slave, "to the Avenger bow." the war is God's instrument for balancing the accounts of righteousness:


Yea! although it tarry long,
Payment shall be made for wrong!"
