Summary
A professor of history who specializes in slavery and constitutional law investigates one of the most significant--and unjustly forgotten--Supreme Court cases in American history involving the slave ship Antelope and the three hundred African lives at stake
Summary
In 1820, the slave ship Antelope was captured off the Florida coast. Though the slave trade was prohibited, slavery was still legal in half of the United States, and it was left to the Supreme Court to determine whether the nearly 300 Africans on board were considered slaves—and if so, to whom they belonged. Mining untapped archives, Jonathan M. Bryant recounts the Antelope’s fraught journey across the Atlantic, leading up to the momentous courtroom battle of 1825 that defined the moral and legal implications of slavery for a generation and was enormously influential in the Amistad trial
