Eventually whites came out with other slaves and ended the revolt nat escaped on the run
for 9 weeks but was eventually captured and killed
Black slaves who are turning on other black slaves.
Theories: that there is much brain was and Stockholm syndrome
Or there is an assumption by the slaves that if there is a rebellion everyone suffers and
therefore they want to stop it
Internal slave trade
Plantations are moving east to west
They are bringing their slaves with them
Natural increase in slaves
A lot of internal movement - masters moving states
Slaves are being sold from different states (there is no more import of slaves)
Slave markets some people sell slaves when they don’t need them (assuming some kind of
surplus or their business goes under)
There are professional traders
Number of slave trading companies
Who own ships and have “slave hotels where they would keep slaves until they could sell
them
These slave traders were not seen negatively. They made a lot of money.
