Domestic Slave Trade Of The Southern States

Book cover
By: (1868-1927)

In Domestic Slave Trade Of The Southern States, author Winfield Hazlitt Collins provides a comprehensive and detailed exploration of the cruel and inhumane practice of slavery within the southern United States. Collins meticulously examines the economic, social, and political factors that contributed to the flourishing domestic slave trade in the antebellum South.

Through thorough research and analysis, Collins sheds light on the harrowing experiences of enslaved individuals who were bought and sold like commodities, often separated from their families and subjected to unimaginable hardships. The author also delves into the role of slave traders, plantation owners, and politicians in perpetuating the institution of slavery for their own financial gain.

Collins' writing is engaging and informative, presenting a nuanced understanding of the complexities of the domestic slave trade and its lasting impact on American society. This book is a valuable resource for anyone seeking to deepen their knowledge of this dark chapter in American history and the ongoing legacy of slavery in the United States.

Book Description:
This 1904 history of slavery in the southeastern United States reflects the state of knowledge at that time, of course. The text contains so many extensive quotations that it was unfeasible to indicate them as quotes in reading the text. The author was a professor of history and English at Claremont College, a North Carolina school that closed in 1917. A resource of more current thinking may be had at the well-regarded 1988 Dictionary Of Afro-American Slavery. - Summary by David Wales
