NEGROES FOR SALE [caption title]
Lewisburg, Tn: Southern Messenger Print, March 28, 1859.. Broadside, 12 x 17 inches. Old fold lines. Repaired with tissue at folds on verso. Lightly foxed. Some splitting at folds, repaired with tissue, minor losses at fold corners. About very good. A rare slave sale broadside for a sale in Lewisburg, Tennessee, a town directly south of Nashville, about half way to the Georgia border. The broadside continues: "By virtue of a decree in Chancery Court at Lewisburg at its February Term 1859, in there case of Moses Thompson et als vs Allen McDaniel et als; I will on the 4th day of April next, (being County Court day) at the Court House door in Lewisburg sell a negro woman and her two children, sold as belonging, to the estate of Francis McDaniel. Full particulars made known on the day of sale." Terms are provided below, offering credit "except 35 or 40 Dollars to be paid in cash." By their very nature, slave sale broadsides are ephemeral and thus scarce - such pieces were hung in public places and then torn down and discarded when the sale was over. Not in Hummel, and evidently unrecorded.
