Slave stories history 'forgot.' black people owned slaves too

Interesting article on PJMedia.com

"Justus Angel and Mistress L. Horry were wealthy landowners in South Carolina’s Colleton District in the 1830s, in what is now Charleston County. The couple owned 84 slaves each for a total of 168, at a time when most of their peers owned a handful. Their slaves worked their plantation and made them rich. Angel and Horry also traded slaves for profit, showing no regard for dissolving slave families. They were no kinder or crueler to their slaves than anyone else. They were considered “slave magnates” because of the number of slaves they owned. They were referred to as the “economic elite.” They were also black."

Just prior to the War Between the States, 20% of southern blacks were free, and 10% of those free blacks owned slaves. This compares to 4 to 5% of the white southern population owning slaves.

Oh, and one of the slave owners in the state of Kentucky was a former and future army officer named Ulysses S. Grant. One of his later associates, William T. Sherman was not rich enough to own a slave, but it is recorded that while stationed at Fort Moultrie, Sherman rented a slave. When he took the position as superintendant of Louisiana's military academy, Sherman wrote his more well to do wife that when she came down to join him she should buy some slaves for housework.
