to such an extent that other leaders had not reached because of his personality. He had quite distinct traits such as being strict, fearless and strong-willed. 4. The slavery development has been a witness from slavery in the early republic to chattel slavery being observed in the early days. The colony's settlers had acquired slaves as early as 1750 despite the move that had been taken by Georgia to outlaw slavery. The demand for slaves rose up during the 1760s and 1770s which even saw Georgia opposed the first continental congress that was advocating for the prohibition of slave imports. In the mid- 1790s Georgia happened to be the only state that was still importing the slaves. This kind of slave trade continued up to 1808 where South Carolina reopened the African slave trade. Chattel slavery was a form of traditional slavery where persons were considered as personal properties of the owners. Furthermore, these slaves could be bought and sold just like any other type of commodities. The children that these slaves gave birth to assumed the slave status on birth.

Moreover, they were to boycott in every activity that subjected them to forced labor. For instance, the farm plantations and the industries which formed the main areas in which they work. By boycotting the colonizers could understand that a revolt was coming up and hence it could influence them to desist from forcing them to working in these areas.
