The Role Of Slavery In The First Colonies

115 Words1 Page
Yesterday, as I was searching for some information regarding slavery in first colonies, I came across an interesting historical document, titled “Resolutions of Germantown, Pennsylvania Mennonites, February 18, 1688”. It was the earliest known official protest against slavery. I also found two articles “The Bible, slavery and Founding Fathers” and “ The Founding Fathers and slavery” that try to describe how a slavery was perceived in that era and what founding fathers thought about it. I liked those articles because they include citations from original documents and therefore seem to be credible. They may also answer at least a tiny piece of your last question.
