‘This book was converted from its physical edition to the digital format by a community of volunteers.’

'Depending on their master, slaves were punished relentlessly to keep them in line. This led to many slave rebellions and uprisings that were never duly reported in history. It was a slave's curse to be owned by a cruel master. There is little wonder that there were many slave uprisings, many of which were never recorded by history.'
