Seth discusses his recent visit to Evergreen Plantation and Whitney Plantation. Evergreen is the most intact plantation in the South, which includes 22 slave cabins in their original positions. The nearby Whitney Plantation opened as a slavery museum in 2014 that includes memorials to the slaves of the plantation and to enslaved babies that died in the county.
