Some wear at corners with boards slightly showing. Head and foot of spine are frayed with minor loss. Some edgewear also, but the book is square and securely bound. G+ to VG-. This fascinating work contains an account of the 18th Century exodus of slaves from Georgia and South Carolina to the Florida territory, where they gained their freedom under Spanish law. Giddings covers many subjects including the First and Second Seminole Wars, attempts by the U. S to recapture slaves and their descendants who had escaped, fighting in Georgia, early history of slavery in the Colonies, Osceola, the Cherokee Nation, and St. Augustine. Of interest, Giddings was censured by the House for his controversial activities in opposition to slavery. ; B&W Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 338 pages
