From 2016 until earlier this year, the artifact now known as Ashley’s sack had been on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture; it was on loan from Middleton Place in South Carolina, where so many viewers started weeping when they saw it that curators handed out tissues beside its display.
