This book examines a relatively small part of slavery’s North American domain, the lower Chattahoochee river Valley between Alabama and Georgia.

This book examines a relatively small part of slavery’s North American domain, the lower Chattahoochee river Valley between Alabama and Georgia. Although geographically at the heart of Dixie, the valley was among the youngest parts of the Old South; only thirty-seven years separate the founding of Columbus, Georgia, and the collapse of the Confederacy. In those years, the area was overrun by a slave society characterized by astonishing demographic, territorial, and economic expansion.

Professor Carey brings to the table a history of slavery that has been powerfully informed by a lively new scholarship. -Susan Eva O'Donovan, author of Becoming Free in the Cotton South, "Over the last generation of scholarship, many of the best works on slavery have been those that address big questions in smaller places/regions. At the level of region, county, or locality, the everyday experience of slavery and its evolution over time comes into focus. Carey (Appalachian State Univ

Sold Down the River: Slavery in the Lower Chattahoochee Valley of Alabama and Georgia, Anthony Gene Carey, Historic Chattahoochee Commission,University of Alabama Press, Aug 31, 2011. Martha Rootes was the daughter of Thomas Reade Rootes and Sarah Battaile. Her first marriage was to Howell Cobb who died in 1818 and was buried at their Cherry Hill Plantation, in Jefferson County, Georgia. Those he enslaved were to pass to his wife during her widowhood, and then on to his brother if she remarried. In 1819 she remarried to Henry Jackson.

In the New World, the buying and selling of slaves and of the commodities that they produced generated immense wealth, which reshaped existing societies and helped build new ones. From small beginnings, slavery in North America expanded until it furnished the foundation for two extraordinarily rich and powerful slave societies, the United States of America and then the Confederate States of America. The expansion and concentration of slavery into what became the Confederacy in 1861 was arguably the most momentous development after nationhood itself in the early history of the American republic. This book examines a relatively small part of slavery’s North American domain, the lower Chattahoochee river Valley between Alabama and Georgia. Although geographically at the heart of Dixie, the valley was among the youngest parts of the Old South; only thirty-seven years separate the founding of Columbus, Georgia, and the collapse of the Confederacy. In those years, the area was overrun by a slave society characterized by astonishing demographic, territorial, and economic expansion. Valley counties of Georgia and Alabama became places where everything had its price, and where property rights in enslaved persons formed the basis of economic activity. Sold Down the River examines a microcosm of slavery as it was experienced in an archetypical southern locale through its effect on individual people, as much as can be determined from primary sources. Published in cooperation with the Historic Chattahoochee Commission and the Troup County Historical Society.
