Chapter 2 outlines the centrality of slavery and blacks to Dr. Charles Carroll’s plans to create an interlocking plantation system of fields, mills, and ironworks. It argues that reintegrating the history of the Baltimore Iron Works to include blacks reshapes the traditional perception of Dr. Charles Carroll, who established slavery on his Baltimore-area properties by the early 1730s. It challenges the myth that colonial elites developed empires on their own; instead, enslaved blacks were the foundation upon which the Carrolls depended.
