Of the larger histories mention may be made of those by Schouler (J. S.), Von Hoist(H.), McMasterQ. B.),Rhodes(J. F.) and the American Nation Series. Schouler's "History of the United States" is decidedly partisan and has almost no good word for the institution.

Hart, is perhaps more fair and unbiased concerning slavery than any of the others, and at the same time relates most of the facts. 2. SOUTH CAROLINA HISTORY, (a) Histories of the State.

This magnificent work is well known and will always be an authority on that period. H...
