History la a record of man's development and achievement. It is necessary that we know the influences and ideas that helped or retarded the advancement. This knowledge should cover local as well as national influences. Therefore, in attempting to write this study on Negro Slavery in the Economy of the South and particularly in Colorado County, this writer makes no pretense in offering a textbook cm this subject. An effort has been made to give the reader some of the national and local events, facts, and accounts of the role that the slave played in the economy of the southern planter, that the writer has found through scientific historical research and investigation.
The role of the Negro slave in the plantation economy of the South lias had many and varied interpretations placed upon it by folklore and from conflicting theories of students of history and leading pioneers in this field of thought. This writer shall 3tate in the following pages some theories set forth by some of the writers of authority.
