1 Ira Berlin and Leslie M. Harris - Editors - SLAVERY IN NEW YORK -

New York Historical Society - 2005 - (Soft Cover - Laminated) - Used - Very Good - (Plus) - (Slave History, New York) - 

(Book is 8" H X 8" W - 403 Page, Coffee Table, Quick Reference Book) "Peeling back the layers of New York's past, is both a disheartening and an exhilarating task. As this volume reminds us, New York was also place of suffering for thousands of early Africans (New York had a thriving slave pens and auctions). This book also provides an opportunity to celebrate the lives of Africans in New York and appreciate their contributions to the nation. Few people know that it was in a restaurant, tavern and inn, owned by an African West Indian man name Fraunces (a strong supporter and close confidant of General Washington and the Independence cause), that the General said farewell to his troops, at a commemorative feast, after the War.
