A broadside advertising an auction of forty-four enslaved people in Charleston, South Carolina, 1859-1860.
The slave auction described in this broadside was for enslaved people from St. Johns Berkeley in South Carolina, and it was held at the slave mart on Chalmers Street in Charleston by brokers P.J. Porcher and Baya. The second page of the broadside lists the names and ages of the men, women, and children for sale. For some, it also notes previous experiences, skills, and health conditions.
