American SlaveryBook - 2000
In 1860, the southern part of the United States was home to four million African American slaves. Only after a bloody war did America abolish slavery. Authors examine the rise of slavery in the colonies of British North America, how the American Revolution left the new country divided between the free North and the slave South, and how slavery became both a cause and casualty of the Civil War.
