Araseli Peña Villa CLAS 114 March 8, 2016 The Outlook of Slavery Looking back to when the European nations found and settled in American land, different parts of America were established and influenced by French, British, and Spanish empires. Due to the differential Monarch controls in different sections of America, all of the European empires had their own impacts on the New World’s social, economic, and political structures. In addition to the development of America, slavery was the most prominent issue that was viewed differently throughout the diverse regions in America. The author Jaime E.

“Gone, gone, sold and gone” (qtd. Douglass 349) illustrates how the slaves how slaves were compared to live stock in America. Slavery was abolished about one hundred fifty years ago, but it is important to not forget the history surrounding it. Even though some people don’t understand the hardships that blacks in slavery faced, it is helpful to read slave narratives. Slave Narratives were either written by slaves, or with assistance from white abolitionist, as an effort to end slavery. Abolitionists wanted to illuminate the horrors that slaves experienced.

The economic structure in the Antebellum South, truly improved with the influx of slavery.

The three Presidents put together have served from 1809 to 1829 in the Presidential office, which means that Washington was under control of this common viewpoint for 20 years.

James Madison was among the few men who, “finagled locating the national capital, Washington, DC, in slave territory” (“Slaveholding Presidents”). Madison was able to hold slaves in office, which
Following the period of Exploration, explorers discovered new lands rich with resources such as gold, silver, and other precious materials that needed to be mined, and crops that needed to be farmed. However, workers who could perform these tasks were scarce. The Native American population had been killed by disease and war, and the colonists weren’t often willing to do this labor. Fortunately for the European colonists, they had access for a convenient and inexpensive labor market via the means of African Slave Trade.
The slave trade was a controversial issue for many people and still is even today. However, many of the leaders of European countries at the time of the slave trade were considered Enlightened Despots due to their reforms set in place to actually help the people and the betterment of the country. Also most of the writing at this time was observing treatment of slaves and most of the people in the world had accepted Enlightenment ideals or traditional christian values wherein both, everyone deserved rights. This is why it can be inferred that during the 17th to 19th c. there was not an absence of humanitarian concern for slaves when it came to the slave trade, but instead it was individuals who lacked humanitarianism while the rest of the world

Slaves, mostly from Africa, worked in the production of tobacco and cotton crops. Later , they were employed or ‘enslaved’ by the whites as for the job of care takers of their houses.

In Jourdan Anderson’s letter to Colonel Anderson, his former master, he is responding to previous correspondence in which it was requested that he return to his former place of slavery to return to work under new and supposedly fair working conditions. Evidently, he has already been away from the plantation for some time, and has in fact started a new life with a new job, a family, and even children. Since becoming a free man, he, “get[s] twenty-five dollars a month, with victuals and clothing; a comfortable home for Mandy …and the children… go to school and are learning well.” Clearly, just in his apparently short time being a free man, he is already earning a fair wage, and working hard to improve the lives of his family. That being said,
Within the narrative Incidents in the life of a slave girl by Harriet A Jacobs 8 there are approximately six people who impact the story in such a way that it would be gravely different without them. These people would include Linda herself, Doctor and Mrs. Flint, the good grandmother, and Linda’s two children. If we were to analyze these characters according to the values represented by Socrates in the book Republic we would find that, according to Socrates only three of these six people possess just souls. According to the guidelines in Republic by Plato10 only the good grandmother and the two children have truly just souls. Doctor Flint would not be presumed as having a just soul by many people today, and certainly not by Plato’s standards.
