About this product
- DescriptionGeorgia was the only British colony in America in which a sustained effort was made to prohibit the introduction and use of black slaves at a time when the institution of slavery was well established in the other southern colonies.In the first half of Slavery in Colonial Georgia, Betty Wood examines the reasons which prompted James Oglethorpe and the other British founders of the colony to originally ban slavery. In their concern for the manners and morals of white society, she says, they anticipated many of the arguments to be employed subsequently by the opponents of slavery on both sides of the Atlantic. The second half of the book examines the development of slavery in Georgia during the quarter century before the Revolution, with special attention on the experience of black slaves in late colonial Georgia.
