This includes every statute passed by every colony and state on slavery, every federal statute dealing with slavery, and all reported state and federal cases on slavery.

Includes pamphlets and books, as well as English-language legal commentary on slavery published before 1920, including many essays and articles in obscure, hard-to-find journals in the United States and elsewhere. Also included is word searchable access to all Congressional debates from the Continental Congress to 1880. Many modern histories of slavery are also included. Within this library is a section containing all modern law review articles on the subject. This collection will continue to grow, not only from new scholarship but also from historical material that is discovered and added to the collection.
