Barbados History - Caribbean History
This is a family history from the viewpoint of a slave. Not pleasant much of the time; but an effort to show what life was really like for the planters and slaves on Barbados. Each of the Caribbean island countries has their own story; but this story is connected with slavery in the United States. George Washington spent time on Barbados; and several Carolinian planters patterned their slave work crews on those developed on Barbados. There is much to be learned about how the mixed race family structures manifested themselves.
