    African Americans and The end of slavery in Massachusetts:

    Within this web presentation, the Massachusetts Historical Society brings together historic manuscripts and rare published reports that serve as a window upon the lives of African Americans in Massachusetts from the late seventeenth century through the abolition of slavery under the Massachusetts Constitution in the 1780s.

    Although the complex role of African Americans, both enslaved and free, in colonial Massachusetts is an important part of our state and local history, the struggle for personal liberty in Massachusetts is central to a full understanding of our national history.

    This website features 117 items from the collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society. This group of unique manuscripts and rare published materials includes handwritten documents and letters by African Americans (Phillis Wheatly and members of the Hartford family), the earliest antislavery pamphlet published in Massachusetts (The selling of Joseph, printed in 1700), petitions of African Americans requesting freedom, documents certifying the freedom of specific individuals, materials relating to two African Americans involved in landmark legal cases that brought an end to slavery in Massachusetts...

    Slavery, Emancipation and Black Freedom in Rhode Island, 1652 - 1842.

    "This dissertation argues that, in Rhode Island, the institution of slavery, the process of emancipation and circumscribed black freedom was fundamentally influenced by the business of slavery. The business of slavery include the West Indian rum and slave trade, the Atlantic slave trade and the negro cloth industry Specifically, I contend that in Rhode Island these businesses led to the legalization of race-based slavery, buttressed the local economy, and helped to maintain the institution of slavery throughout the Americas..."

    To All,

    If any of the membership would like to contribute more about slavery and it's end in a northern state, you are more than welcome to post here.

    My posts above are not the end all on that particular state and I would appreciate any other sources about the topic you might find and post.

    I only ask that you provide a source for your posts and that it can be viewed by all members here.

    Sincerely,
    Unionblue

    How many slaves? How many were in Vermont and New Jersey? How many in Iowa, Nebraska or Colorado?

    Writing about the survival of slavery in the North after the Revolutionary War is a little like talking about forest fires in Oregon on the day the arsonist on trial set fires in Charlotte.

    My grandmother grew up in the city of Hudson, and my father lives there now, after working in Albany for the state for a bunch of years.

    I really enjoy visiting there. Very artsy.

    BTW, the Museum of Firefighting there has a small Fire Zoave exhibit.
