The Wolf at the Door

The story of Tom, an African-American fiddler, and a history of African American’s and slavery during the formation of Syracuse.

Tom began to head home from the party after 2 a.m. that morning. A farmer, who did odd jobs for neighbors and who loved to play the fiddle, he lived in the Hollow with his wife, Sadie and their four young boys. Earlier in the evening, he had entertained women as they quilted and men who worked on finishing a favorite alcoholic drink of the time called applejack. Tom’s path down the hill must have been as familiar to him as his set list, which, according to sources, consisted of just two tunes, the English/American “Heye Betty Martin" and the well-known anti-Irish satire, “Brian O’Linn.”
