Description: The evolution of North Carolina's Slave Codes begins in 1669, and for the most part, ends in 1862. Nestled within those years, was an ever growing number of new laws enacted by the North Carolina General Assembly; the purpose of which was to control the great numbers of not-always-docile slaves in the Colony of North Carolina, and later, the State of North Carolina. There were insurrections, uprisings, and runaways; all of which were crushed in the end. Some slaves were treated fairly, and others were treated brutally. Slavery in the South was a perfect example of man's inhumanity to man. The North Carolina Slave Codes speak for themselves. Read this book and weep. A Chronology of Laws and a fullname plus subject index augment this valuable work.
