Native American Slavery – New

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. In 2004, he was chosen, along with 2 others, to be the educational coordinator for the 13-day bus tour sponsored by then National Elderhostel program for the 250th anniversary commemoration of the French & Indian War, 1754 – 1763.
