SLAVERY AND FREEDOM AND BACON'S REBELLION,
BASED ON, Taylor "Chesapeake Colonies," Morgan, "The Paradox of Slavery and Freedom," and Menard "From Servitude to SlaveryÖ"
According to Taylor and Morgan, Bacon's Rebellion and events surrounding it constitute a major development in American history pointing towards the American Revolution and beyond.
This historical significance has to do with a set of complex relationships in late 17th†century Virginia between the British and American elites, the average white colonists, slaves and Indians. The end result was the emergence of "freedom" as a central social value. This value seems to have emerged out of a complex relationship to the effects of Bacon's Rebellion and the emergence of slavery.
The central issue is the†effects†of Bacon's Rebellion combined with simultaneous transition to slavery.
Edmond Morgan's historical concept of a paradox is crucial part of this issue.
Both Morgan and Taylor are blocking historical explanations that involve "hypocrisy" or "White conspiracy." Keep that in mind in creating a brief characterization of the historical explanation which they are offering.
