||Georgia is the last of the British
North American colonies to legalize slavery.
||White slave owners lived in cities like
Savannah; whereas the majority of the 40,000 slaves at this time
lived on plantations.
||By this time, slavery is
entrenched in the original 6 slave states: Maryland, Delaware,
Virginia, North Carolina, Sough Carolina, and Georgia.
||Georgia prohibits the
importation of slaves from outside the United States.
