Description

Two pages from a larger digital article, "The 1850 and 1860 Census, Schedule 2, Slave Inhabitants," from the AfriGeneas Library, which dedicates itself to literature concerning African-American genealogy, as well as researching African ancestry in the Americas. This excerpt discusses a Congressional debate from the first session of the 31st Congress. The focus of the debate was whether to name slaves (listing their name, age, sex, etc.) using the newly proposed U.S. Census tables, or to simply enumerate them, getting an aggregate number for census purposes.
