Lecture 2, Slavery and Resistance, traces the emergence and development of slavery in the U.S. from colonial origins to the Civil War.

A particular focus is on the dramatic geographic and numerical growth of slavery as the South’s plantation-based “peculiar institution” after the invention of the cotton gin in 1793, including the lives of the enslaved.
