General Petition Information

Abstract:Fifty-two Stokes County citizens, "convinced of the pernicious consequences of slave-dealers and others bringing into this State, slaves, many of whom are the most vicious characters that can be selected from farms, and from the gaols of the country," ask that a law be passed "to prevent the further introduction of slaves into this State, under any pretence whatsoever." The residents insist that the continued importation of slaves leads to the "great demoralization and corruption of other slaves, and to the detriment of the citizens."
