University Press of Florida

This chapter broadly examines nineteenth-century evolution of slaveholdings on the grain farms of Fairfax County, the rice plantations of Georgetown District, and the sugar plantations of St. James Parish. What was the spatial distribution and sexual composition of enslaved populations in different regions of the non-cotton South, and how did they change over time? The aim of this chapter is to provide a basis from which to further explore enslaved people's experiences with family formation and stability by first establishing the social landscapes of slave populations in each region.

Keywords:   slaveholdings, slave population, social landscape, rice plantations, Georgetown District, sexual composition
