Major Butler's Legacy...


Malcolm,Bell, Jr.

This is the epic story of the powerful, aristocratic family of Pierce Butler, a major slaveholder in Georgia and South Carolina and chief architect of the 1787 Fugitive Slave Law.

"Malcolm Bell uses Butler and his heirs as a means to explore the role of slavery in a single family from the eve of the American Revolution to the early years of this century. Bell evenhandedly examines the legacy from the vantage point of slave and master." -Richmond Times- Dispatch
