- n. Plural form of log cabin.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
These were my companions and fellow-slaves, with whom I was accustomed to be driven to the field, and with whom it has been my lot to dwell for ten years in the log cabins of Edwin Epps. They, if living, are yet toiling on the banks of Bayou Boeuf, never destined to breathe, as I now do, the blessed air of liberty, nor to shake off the heavy shackles that enthrall them, until they shall lie down forever in the dust.
They were des-cendents of the pioneers who had settled this north country, chopping down trees to build their log cabins and picking wild herbs to make their own medicines.
