Explore slavery in Revolutionary War New York with this informative poster/history lesson.
During the war, New York became a sanctuary for 10,000 freedom-seeking African Americans from up and down the coast. Former slaves signed contracts with the British and were paid for their work. They were no longer "so-and-so's slave Cato," always identified by their connection to a slave master. Now they chose family names for themselves. They argued over politics, preached the Gospel, and began to define themselves as a free people.
