Colonial Special Interest Group - 08 Jun 2024

June Topic: The Indian Slave Trade, Bacon's Rebellion, and Its Role in The Expansion Of The Transatlantic African Slave Trade

by Mary Hoyer

When a prominent genealogist said the Indian slave trade did not happen, Mary felt compelled to find primary sources documenting its role in Bacon's Rebellion of 1676 and how it laid the foundation for the expansion of the transatlantic Slave trade. Come and find out how an almost erased history can be found and where to look. Mary will share the journey of peeling back the layers with an extensive syllabus of sources, repositories, and scholars and the process that uncovered the untold story. 

Mary Hoyer is a long time member and former board member of CAGGNI. She currently leads CAGGNI's Colonial America SIG.

Cost: Guests may attend for $5. CAGGNI SIGs are free for members.

About the Colonial Special Interest Group: Normally a members-only group that focuses on Colonial America research, this session is being opened to non-members, one in a series CAGGNI hopes to offer in 2024.

CAGGNI Members take note: Please register for the Zoom link specific to this meeting.
