SLAVE PAPER
Biography | show moreshow less
This probate document divides the Negroes from the estate of the deceased Henry Smith between his widow, Sarah Smith, and William and Martha Luckie. At the time, Negro slaves were considered property and could be bought and sold or used as collateral. Just eight months previous to these proceedings, the Civil War had begun -- largely over the slavery dispute. On January 1, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing the slaves of the Confederate states.
