Slavery has been around since the dawn of time. Known as serfdom or thralldom, slavery is a system which allows human beings to become the property of other human beings. This category addresses slavery specifically in the United States, and before that, the Colonies. Though frequently thought of as a southern institution, there were slaves in all colonies and all parts of the United States until 1865, despite the fact that it had been a contentious issue since the 1600s. This is the category which contains sites which outline and document that history.
