Sample text

Philip D. 5 percent of the runaways between 1732 and 1775. 1 percent of the runaways. 4 In colonial Georgia, of the advertised runaways whose origin is known 25 percent were born in the country; 30 percent were Africans who had lived in the Caribbean or North America; and 45 percent were newly arrived Africans. 6 “New Negroes” If Africans ran away disproportionately, notices show that the newly arrived among them were the most prone to do so. Slaveholders used various terms to categorize the people born in Africa.

49 In December 1736, for example, the Upper and Lower Creeks agreed to bring any runaway who came to them to the garrisons of Savannah or Pallachucola. 51 It is important to emphasize that the colonists wanted not only to prevent the loss of property, but more importantly the alliance of Native Americans and African Americans against the white population. As the settlers discovered, the former were not monolithic. They formed alliances with and fought against other Indian nations, colonists of various European stripes, and enslaved and runaway blacks depending on a variety of factors, including the changing politics of the time.

Lewis’s observation about the propensity of newly arrived Africans to head for the woods finds an echo in Lula Coleman’s memories of her African grandfather, John Ren, who had been deported to Alabama. He lived “on nobody’s place before the surrender,” she said, “Couldn’t nobody own him. ”2 Ren rebelled against his enslavement, never spoke English, and refused Western clothes. He lived in a cave and did not allow anybody to stay with him. These two cases are particularly revealing as they occurred after 1830, a period when Africans were a small minority arriving and living in the United States.
