Who is Frederick Douglass? Frederick Douglass was a man who was raised during the institution of slavery and believed that everyone involved was victimized. Looking back in history, Frederick gave an inside to how and why this statement is true. Slaves were obviously abused physically and were brainwashed about their culture. Slave-owners or slaveholders were corrupted mentally which turned them into evil human beings.
Slaves had it hard throughout their lifetime. In the book Chains it gives brief examples of what it was like to be a slave and what some had to go through. In the book it explained a slave's life in plantation, small farm, and the city. Slaves working in plantation were in the rural areas of the country. When the slaves had to work it was a lot harder because of the sun.
Civil War DBQ Test The slaves in America were mistreated in almost every way possible. For example, the slaves had very poorly built homes/log cabins, that when it rained or snowed the rain or snow would come in through the cracks in the ceiling and the walls(Doc.3).Ruining the floor and soak and freeze the slave and his family or the other people in the cabin(Doc.3). Another example of the slaves being mistreated is them being sold away from their families and everything that they know(Doc.1). One journalist by the name of Frederick Douglass pointed out the institution of slavery to point out that slaves were being mistreated the institution says: “The law gives the master absolute power over the slave.
The Atlantic System grew between 1500 and 1800 because of numerous causes that increased trade between Europe, The Caribbean, and Africa. The English were on an exploration and landed in the New World, also known as, the Americas. While searching the land they found a new crop that was super addictive and taste good, they felt like they needed to have and harness. They demanded so much that they needed workers to help continue the production of the addictive crop. The addictive crop that the Portuguese loved so much is sugar.
The examination of textbooks and sources in the sixteen states he based his article on show that in many cases the status and progression of African-Americans from the shackles of slavery had been sanitised and was not a true reflection of reality. He argues many of the narratives portrayed the Negro freedman as “shiftless, sometimes vicious, and easily led into corruption”. Moreover he believed many of the textbooks defended the treatment that the South enacted on African-American slaves.
Slavery had many faces but the underlying concept remained beneath each of these different faces. No matter how kindly a slave was treated by their master, they were still considered property and subhuman. While some owners beat and mutilated their slaves, others were more "kind" and treated their slaves humanely. Nonetheless, they still owned slaves and believed the slaves were property. Famous former slaves, such as Frederick Douglass, enlightened people as to how slaves were treated by their masters.
One can infer that this reinforcement deprives Lloyd and masters alike of their sense of compassion, empathy and sympathy for others. The above qualities are what make humans human. The various forms of oppression dehumanize the oppressed and even the oppressors, however dehumanization is a learned behavior when Douglass states, “Why his career was so short, I do not know, but suppose he lacked the necessary severity to suit Colonel Lloyd” (329). This text suggests that the previous overseer, Hopkins, was fired because he did not possess certain qualities of an oppressor. Due to not meeting the standards of Colonel Lloyd, Lloyd may have had “little” compassion for the slaves.
In a time where Slavery was at its worst in the South, all slaves could dream about was being set free, living their own lives, not being seen and treated as property. Without the proper help, however, they would never succeed in escaping alone. The underground railroad gave them hope, that someday they would be able to live that life by helping hundreds of thousands of slaves escape to the Northern States where they could be free. Slaves used to endure cruel treatment from their owners on almost a daily basis.
Slavery, the War on Black Family While slavery in America was an institution that was started over 400 years ago, the affects were so horrific that it is still felt today by modern day African Americans. Many families had to deal with the constant stress of being sold which made it difficult to have a normal family life. Slaves were sold to pay off debts, an owner dying and his slaves were sold in an estate sale, or when an owner’s children would leave the home to begin a life of their own, they would take slaves with them. Often times, children were not raised by their parents, other family members of someone designated to watch the children because the mother and father had to work long hours and the children were too young to join them.
The slaves and slaveholders that lived in the south didn 't always have a easy life. Douglass saw this as he was moved from house to house to house throughout his life as a slave. Slaves knew this due to them doing most of the hard work while the slaveholders did nothing but sit in their homes and do absolutely nothing. And when the slaveholders finally saw it themselves it was too late for them to do anything about it Slaves were the ones who had to endure all of the hardships of living in the south due to them being the ones who had to do all of the work.
Historical archeology helps understand of how the modern world was shaped. Even the smallest a artifact can play a major role of discovering ways of how people of the past lived their lives. Throughout this assignment, In Small Things Forgotten: An Archaeology of Early American Life by James Deetz, was more helpful than the rest of the reading assignments. Deetz understands the importance of how a small artifact can lead to big discoveries. Without the small detail of findings, it will be even harder to piece back the past and learned how people lived.
Some things that the slave owners did to them was whipped, shackled, and also imprisonment.

The topic of slavery is a topic that is well known and is almost ingrained in the students and adults of the United States. However, the basic knowledge and repetition of the rights and wrongs of slavery becomes almost calloused information, that is in the past. It is not until you truly see the effect of slavery in the lives of those who were most affected by it when you really see the significance and gravity of the situation.
