1777-08-14, Observations on slaves and indentured servants inlisted in the U.S. Army & Navy (variant)
August 14, 1777 broadside from "Antibiastes" in Philadelphia, regarding his observations on slaves and indentured servants serving in the Army and
Navy. The author was extremely critical of the use of these men as soldier, as they were not given the bounties nor freedom promised to the other
soldiers. He encouraged amnesty for soldiers in certain instances (such as desertion), as well as emancipating the slaves/servants who served in the
military. See LLMC #20973 for a variant copy which contained a quote by Horace and a colophon. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of the title originally
held by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania Library (c.1) and the American Philosophical Society Library (c.2)).
