In Slavery and Social Death, Orlando Patterson talks about the issues surrounding manumission, the act of a master giving freedom to a slave. “The act of manumission,” Patterson writes, “creates not just a new person and a new life, but a new status…the single most important factor in determining the condition of the freedman in the society at large will be the nature of his relationship with his former master” (240).

Andrew Johnson clashed with Senators and Congressmen who, in some cases for reasons of justice, in others out of political calculation, supported equal rights and voting for the freedman. The slaves were then packed tightly into the slave ships, so that they could hardly move. Large numbers of Africans were obtained from southern Africa (Angola and Mozambique) where the Portuguese had a dominant role. Most of these were earning their own subsistence, 41,150 in military service as soldiers, laundresses, cooks, officers servants, or laborers, 62,300 in private employment as mechanics, draymen, hackmen, barbers, hired laborers, and the like; the remainder depended in whole or in part upon the government for support.

To this day, in the West Indies, emancipation is officially celebrated from the end of apprenticeship in 1838, not from the end of slavery in 1834. Now their condition has gone from bad to worse. Excerpts from the writings of Sterne, William Earle and others are used to demonstrate the significance of the form in projecting utopian visions of a future without slavery while simultaneously depicting the slave condition in stereotypical and sentimentalised ways.
