The Internal Enemy: Slavery and War in Virginia, 1812-1815

The book examines escapes by enslaved people from Virginia to British warships operating in Chesapeake Bay during the War of 1812, their resettlement as free people in Nova Scotia and Trinidad, and the consequences of this story. Funding for this program is made possible by grants from Virginia Humanities and the M. Meade Palmer Memorial Fund at Northern Piedmont Community Foundation.
