Format: Paperback
The slave accounts in this book are devastating. There is some doubt about their origins in some cases, but they sound credible. One was dictated anonymously to an abolitionist in London. Jacob Stroyer's account describes his service for the Confederate Army at Fort Sumter. South Carolina enacted a strict bondservant code in 1664, but only white indentured servants were there at the time. The first three blacks arrived from Bermuda in 1670. Subsequent laws forced slaveowners to mutilate their slaves for repeated offenses, especially running away. Not surprisingly, it became an extremely violent place.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very dissappointed! Was anxious to receive the book. Delivery was delayed due to inclement weather, (over 10 days from the time it was ordered). Book captured excerpts from other novels/books/research at best. Nothing I would recommend for others to purchase to add to their library.
