Update: Runaway Slave Advertisements Chart.

June 23, 2007

The JPEG files below are JPEG versions of Excel charts based on runaway slave advertisements from 1818-1824.  I converted the Excel file I posted yesterday into JPEG files so those without Excel could still view the information. Now all you have to do is use the image enhancer Icon (the little magnifying glass with a + sign inside that appears when you click on these JPEGS) to blow them up to full size.

So tell me what you think. Did these newspaper ads for runaway slaves include anything that shocked or surprised you? What did you learn?

By Monday I will publish a post on the contents of these ads and what they tells us about slavery in North Carolina during that period (1818-1824). Hope to have plenty of comments by then.
