General Petition Information

Abstract:Francis Tisdale recounts that his slave sustained serious injuries "while employed in assisting in opening" a "New Road from Sumter court house to intersect the road leading down the west side of Black River." According to Tisdale, his slave "received a Considerable injury, both his [thighs] and one arm broken by the falling on him of a tree." The petitioner further reports that he has thusly "been put to considerable expence" and that by "the nature of the injury he has been deprived of the labour & Services of Said Slave for a considerable time past"; in addition, "said slave is depreciated in his value in consequence of said injury." Noting that he is "in indigent circumstances," Tisdale appeals for "that releif which has ever been shown to those whose property has been injured or used in the public service."
