Slave Trade News - 1847
Slave Trade news in 1847 advertising a Servant Woman for sale and a 17 year old boy going on the block for a life transaction.
Appears to be Washington D.C. and Alexandria.
Manacled captives ... are turned out into our streets, and exposed to view loaded with chains. Wretched creatures ... were handcuffed and chained together. When they arrive at the slave ships loading to head south: ... Here you may behold fathers and brothers leaving behind them the dearest objects of affection, and moving slowly along in the mute agony of despair--there the young mother sobbing over the infant whose innocent smiles seem but to increase her misery.
