Upcoming file on abolishing the slave trade and slavery
I have heard that the Government wants British history taught in the schools and that attention will be focused on the history of the slave trade. One assumes that the abolition of the trade and slavery will be part of the curriculum. The subject appears here in the 1787-1799 Liberty Timeline, and in the 1800-1833 Timeline. As well we are going to put up a new file, expanding on the unusual men and women who acted together to abolish the trade and slavery. The file, which will appear within the week, may interest parents and students.
