9780807117231: Crooked Run: Poems (Peculiar Institution in Texas, 1821-1865)

As Texas emerged from the Western frontier relatively late in the formation of the USA, it is frequently and incorrectly perceived as fundamentally Western in its political and social orientation. In fact, most of the settlers of this area were emigrants from the South, and many brought with them their slaves and all aspects of slavery as it had matured in their native states.

From Library Journal:

In the popular mind, Texas conjures up images of the Old West and freedom of the range. Campbell reminds us that Texas grew from Southern roots entangled in human bondage. By the Civil War, Texas had a slave area equal to Alabama and Mississippi and a slave population comparable to Virginia. In the first comprehensive study of slavery in Texas, Campbell offers useful chapters on the law, the domestic slave trade, Indian relations, labor, family, religion, and more, but his book is especially welcome because it pulls the focus on bondage away from the Chesapeake and the Carolinas to show slavery's expansive and adaptive power in the developing West. Slavery knew no bounds, as Lincoln always understood. Recommended for college and university libraries.
