Slavery in America, Revised Edition recounts the history of the enslavement of African Americans in North America, as well as the Reconstruction period, by examining, chapter by chapter, many of its aspects: slave catchers and their coffles in Africa, the crowded slave ships that transported Africans along the triangular trade routes to America, slave auctions, life and labor on plantations, escape attempts and insurrections, and the Civil War and eventual emancipation. This edition also features a new chapter that extends coverage through Reconstruction.

The authors capture the complexities and the extent of slavery, as well as document the wide differences in the ways people reacted to this terrible institution.

Hundreds of firsthand accounts—from diary entries, letters, speeches, and newspaper accounts—illustrate how historical events appeared to those who lived through them. The eyewitness testimonies include Sojourner Truth, Nat Turner, Benjamin Franklin, Harriet Tubman, and Abraham Lincoln.

In addition, each chapter provides an introductory essay and a chronology of events. The book also includes such critical documents as the 1672 charter of the Royal African Company; the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850; the Emancipation Proclamation; and the 15th Amendment; as well as capsule biographies of more than 150 key figures; maps, graphs, and tables; a bibliography; an index; a glossary; and 98 black-and-white photographs.
