Project #57484 - earlier American history

For your first short written assignment, I want you to examine two documents related to the origins of race-based slavery in the English colonies.  The first is an excerpt from the Virginia Colony's law codes regarding issues of race, servitude and the law.  The second is a public statement of protest by Pennsylvania Quakers against the practice of slavery.  After reading these documents, I want you to address the following questions.

1.  How did law in Virginia Colony begin to establish connections between race and lifetime slavery?

2.  How did these measures attempt to draw lines between indentured servants and slaves?

3.  Identify two arguments made by the Quakers against the growing institution of slavery.

Your respond should be a page or so double-spaced, with 12 pt font and one inch margins.  When you're finished, please turn in a copy in the Dropbox labeled "Assignment 1."  This is due before class on Tuesday February 10.  If you have any questions or problems, please let me know.
