The facts in this case are 1 and 2. Both put doubt on Carter's credibility when it comes to the subject of slavery. First, because the interview took place in 1938, decades after slavery was abolished, Carter's interview is heavily reliant on his memory, which may be wrong. Second, both of his parents fought for the South in the Civil War, which may have influenced his post-slavery recollection and experience.
