By Antonio T. Bly,Tamia Haygood

Escaping Servitude: A Documentary historical past of Runaway Servants in Eighteenth-Century Virginia is an edited selection of runaway servant ads that seemed in newspapers in eighteenth-century Virginia. as well as documenting the fugitive within the Chesapeake, it provides to our figuring out of indentured servitude and gives invaluable insights into an immense bankruptcy in American heritage.

Escaping Servitude’s contribution to scholarship is threefold. First, it calls new awareness to the scant scholarly physique of labor relating indentured servitude; particularly, the paintings relating fugitive servants. Highlighting good over a thousand money owed during which bondsmen and ladies ran clear of their masters in Virginia in the course of the colonial period, Escaping Servitude complements Abbot Emerson Smith’s Colonist in Bondage: White Servitude and Convict hard work in the United States, 1607-1776, Edmund Morgan’s American, American Freedom, David W. Galenson’s White Servitude in Colonial America, Anthony dad or mum Jr.’s Foul Means, Don Jordon and Michael Walsh’s White Cargo, and others reviews of American serfdom. Secondly, because there's presently no different documentary background in print for different colonies in British the United States, Escaping Servitude hopes to encourage related histories for eighteenth-century Maryland, North and South Carolina, Georgia, and the northern colonies. much less recognized are the lifestyles tales of indentures who absconded in different components of British the United States. eventually, in its explication of the lives of the unfree, Escaping Servitude hopes to extend the present educational discourse concerning the heritage of slavery and race.
