(p.112) Chapter Four Extending Slavery
Deliver Us from Evil

Lacy K. Ford, Jr.

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the anxieties generated in the region by South Carolina's decision to reopen the foreign slave trade, the rapid expansion of slavery into the Old Southwest, and the German Coast slave insurrection in Louisiana in 1811. It briefly examines the resistance fomented by a coalition of the British, enslaved blacks, and native Americans during the War of 1812, and Andrew Jackson's concomitant rise as the champion of whites who wanted safe access to land, slaves, and cotton profits.

Keywords:   Louisiana, South Carolina, slavery, insurrection, Andrew Jackson
