I bought Professor Newman’s book at Monticello in Charlottesville.
I had just started reading it this evening when I found this video. If you want to understand our origins in the Deep South, you have to understand how it all got started in Barbados.
Note: It gets real good around 14:00. Professor Newman explains how the plantation complex expanded out of Barbados to the Leeward Islands to Jamaica and to South Carolina. From Charleston, it spread into the South Carolina Backcountry before it exploded west to Texas.
