Slave Traders

This photograph was taken in 1865. The picture shows a business engaged in the Slave Trade. The sign on the building reads, "Price, Birch, and Co. Dealers in Slaves." The building appears to be occupied by Union troops. It is hard to imagine that such business establishments existed in this country.

  2. You said it padre , I'll bet that store is a skeleton in someone's family closet now. I don't think anyone would want to admit that their family store sold humans.
