HORRIBLE ABUSES OF SLAVERY Horrible conditions for slaves (87% pop.): For the least fault the slaves received the harshest punishment. In 1685 the Negro Code authorised [sic] whipping, and in 1702 one colonist, a Marquis, thought any punishment which

demanded more than 100 blows of the whip was serious enough to be handed over to the authorities. Later the number was fixed at 39, then raised to 50. But the colonists paid no attention to these regulations and slaves were not unfrequently whipped to death. The slaves received the whip with more certainty and regularity than they received their foodMutilations were common, limbs, ears, and sometimes the private partsTheir

masters poured burning wax on their arms and hands and shoulders, emptied the boiling cane sugar over their heads, burned them alive, roasted them on slow fires, filled them with gunpowder and blew them up with a match James, C.L.R.

significant revolution in history) What effects do you think it may have had on the Americas?
