New – Native American Slavery
3 sessions, 6 hours
Learn why and how Indians were used by American colonists as slaves. Some Indian nations were slavers, meaning they raided other nations for slaves. We’ll examine why they did this. Finally, we’ll see how southern colonial slave wars influenced Indian migration to and through Maryland.
Instructor: Colonial historian Roger G. Swartz received national acclaim for his two books covering the frontiers of the American Revolution.
