Description:

This paper analyzes the book "American Slavery, American Freedom," which was written by historian Edmund S. Morgan and published in 2003 by W. W. Norton. The writer examines how Morgan attempts to explain the paradox of the colonial freedom fighters, particularly in Virginia, who at the same time did not think it a contradiction to own slaves.

From the Paper:

"The author's examination of slavery in America emphasizes the tragic contradiction between freedom and slavery, and focuses on Virginia, which produced leaders of the American Revolution who were dedicated to freedom and equality, but which also had the most slave owners. In his book, Morgan analyzes this paradox as he strives to understand and explain why such a contradiction existed."
