From 1654 until 1865, slavery for life was legal within the boundaries of the present United States.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_slavery

Slavery in the United States began soon after English colonists first settled Virginia and lasted until the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Before the widespread establishment of chattel slavery, much labor was organized under a system of bonded labor known as indentured servitude. This typically lasted for several years for white and black alike, and it was a means of using labor to pay the costs of transporting people to the colonies. By the 18th century, court rulings established the racial basis of the American incarnation of slavery to apply chiefly to Black Africans and people of African descent, and occasionally to Native Americans. In part because of the Southern colonies' devotion of resources to tobacco culture, which was labor intensive, by the end of the 17th century they had a higher number and proportion of slaves than in the north.


Most slaves were black and were held by whites, although some Native Americans and free blacks also held slaves. The majority of slaveholding was in the southern United States where most slaves were engaged in an efficient machine-like gang system of agriculture. According to the 1860 U.S. census, nearly four million slaves were held in a total population of just over 12 million in the 15 states in which slavery was legal. Of all 1,515,605 families in the 15 slave states, 393,967 held slaves (roughly one in four), amounting to 8% of all American families. Most households, however, had only a few slaves.

To the victors goes the spoils! The truth is that un-official (illegal) slavery of African Americans continued well into the mid-1900s. My mother, 87 years old and yes African American, can still remember picking cotton and the plantation she was raised on in Mississippi. History records slavery as ending in 1865 because 99.99% of the history of AA slavery was carried out and written by white slave masters... to the victor goes the spoil... the privilege of recording history as you see fit. Pulling information from Wiki and beleiving it to be the truth and the only truth is no different than believing the world is flat. Discovery the truth by exploring the truth and you will find the real truth. C.J.

CJ My Mother has since passed from this life, but she too picked cotton. She was born in Oklahoma but picked cotton in a place she called "the sticks." She was born in 1935 so to think that slavery was abolished by the time she was in her teens, is totally canard. (I will never forget the stories she told. Her natural skin was as light as Valerie Jarrett's but after years in the cotton fields, her skin was a chocolate hue similar to Whitney Houston's.) Their history books record their archives, as they desire it to be recorded, which is a distorted account of our Black ancestors. The facts will never be revealed, as there is no need to indemnify the luxuries this Country has offered to all except [for] those who helped build it.
