How to use slavery in a sentence?

  1. Francis Marion:

    Well, now, this is exactly my case. I am in love; and my sweetheart is LIBERTY. Be that heavenly nymph my companion, and these wilds and .Woods shall have charms beyond London and Paris in slavery. To have no proud monarch driving over me with his gilt coaches; nor his host of excise-men and tax-gatherers insulting and robbing me ; but to be my own master, my own prince and sovereign, gloriously preserving my national dignity, and 'pursuing my true happiness; planting my vineyards, and eating their lucious fruits; and sowing my fields, and reaping the golden grain: and seeing millions of ‘brothers all around me, equally free and happy as myself. “This, sir, is What I long for.” p. 155 ... On his return to Georgetown, he was asked by colonel Watson, why he looked so serious? I have cause, sir,” said he, “to look serious.” Watson What! has general Marion refused to treat?” No, sir.” “Well, then, has old Washington defeated sir Henery Clinton, and broke up our army ? No, sir, not that neither ; but worse.” “Ah! what can be worse?” Why, sir, I have seen an American general and his officers, without pay, and almost without clothes, living on roots and drinking water ; and all for LIBERTY! What chance have we against such men!” It is said colonel Watson was not much obliged to him for this speech. But the young ofiicer was so struck with Marion’s sentiments, that he never rested until he threw up his commission, and retired from the service. ' p 156

  5. Jamela Dunbar:

    Independence Day in America was July 4, 1776. Blood, sweat. and tears. Negros remember the oppression of their forefathers. And the condemnation of slavery. The memories are bittersweet to this day. When you look back at history. The abuse, affliction, and demeanor of our fore parents' rights, invaded. The pain is still sharp. And fresh in our memories like yesterday. And it lives on in our heart, like Cancer without a cure.
