Myths and Realities of American Slavery: The True History of Slavery in America

John C. Perry

  • Myths and Realities of American Slavery: The True History of Slavery in America

American slavery.  What a perplexing, disturbing, yet fascinating period in American history.  Few topics bring about as much emotion today, stirring racial, geographical, political, and even religious feelings.  As America debates the Slave Reparation issue in the 21st century, the “peculiar institution” of slavery in the 19th century still affects us today.

What were the facts?  We all know the stereotypical versions of slavery as portrayed by books such as Uncle Tom’s Cabin and by movies such as Roots and Gone with the Wind.  Do our history books accurately tell the facts of American slavery?

The time has come for a fresh look at American slavery.  Now we can look at the true history, untainted by the influence of political correctness on this emotionally charged topic.  Were slaves treated cruelly or far more humanely than our current perception tells us? Or does the truth lie somewhere in between?

What you learn will surprise, perhaps even amaze you.  In this book you will find joy and you will find sadness, but most of all you will find the truth—the true facts of slavery in America.
