This database brings together a multitude of essential legal materials on slavery in the United States and the English-speaking world. This includes every statute passed by every colony and state on slavery, every federal statute dealing with slavery, and all reported state and federal cases on slavery. It includes case coverage that extends into the 20th century because long after slavery was ended, there were still court cases based on issues emanating from slavery. In addition, it includes pamphlets and books written about slavery—defending it, attacking it or simply analyzing it---as well as every English-language legal commentary on slavery published before 1920, which includes many essays and articles in obscure, hard-to-find journals in the United States and elsewhere. It also includes many modern histories of slavery. Within this library is a section containing all modern law review articles on the subject. This library will continue to grow, not only from new scholarship but also from historical material that we continue to locate and add to the collection.
