In the British Westindies the Slaves were freed in 1834 but had to worked for 4 years for absoloute freedom. They had to buy and build thier villages, and aquired the lands. Nothing was given to them, like the Indians, they earned it and worked for what they got. Often they faught for their freedom and when they got it, restrictions were imposed on them and rediculous taxes as well.

the following Documentary you will hear how the Slaves in the South of the United States got away to the North by way of the Underground Railway. The name of Harriet Truman comes to mind
