Runaway in Colonial Virginia In between 1730 through the 1800s, slavery was still an empowering label going around the Virginia Gazette newspaper. Whether you were 14 years young or as old as 42 years young. If you were an African American during this time you were a slave for the White if they bought you. They were a total of 697,624 slaves. Many of these slaves were about 5 feet tall and some inches, active and were mostly active with their hands. Many ran away while doing certain jobs for their owner. The majority of the slaves that ran while the could. In today’s essay, I am going to tell you about what types of slaves the white men were buying, their daily lives and interests before taken into slavery, the rewards owners are offering if they find their slave, and age groups. Unlike today, no matter what color of skin you have, whether you’re white, African American, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, and so on. It doesn’t matter. We all can share public water fountains, restrooms, transportations, jobs, and etc. Unfortunately, times weren’t like this in the 1700s.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
