Our focus today was on the study of slavery. We completed a DocBlock over an excerpt from a secondary source work of history on the Middle Passage to begin the day. We then embarked on an extended document analysis looking at runaway slave advertisements. Since we have little int he way of primary sources created by enslaved people to work from, historians turn to sources like these advertisements to tease out the details of life in slavery, the differences between slavery and servitude, and the ways enslaved people were viewed by others in Pre-Revolutionary America.
Don't forget that Chapter 4 is due tomorrow!
