This HeinOnline collection brings together all known legal materials on slavery in the United States and the English-speaking world. This includes every statute passed by every colony and state on slavery, every federal statute dealing with slavery, and all reported state and federal cases on slavery. The library has hundreds of pamphlets and books written about slavery—defending it, attacking it or simply analyzing it. It gathers every English-language legal commentary on slavery published before 1920, which includes many essays and articles in obscure, hard-to-find journals in the United States and elsewhere, and provides more than a thousand pamphlets and books on slavery from the 19th century. It includes word-searchable access to all Congressional debates from the Continental Congress to 1880, as well as many modern histories of slavery. Within the library is a section containing all modern law review articles on the subject. The library will continue to grow, not only from new scholarship but also from historical material that will be continually added to the collection.
