Ancestors of Worthy Life

Chapter 4 confronts the contradiction of the Carrolls as American patriots and slaveholders during the Revolutionary era. Charles’s political activities were reflected by a fully developed complex of plantation mansion and outbuildings and the activities carried out by enslaved persons. Enslaved blacks’ lives at Mount Clare during the Revolutionary era suggested that the appearance of everyday life obscured deeper ideological disconnects at the heart of a race-based social order. This chapter identifies Carroll’s activities during wartime as well as the runaway or escaped slaves who exercised their rights to freedom.

Keywords:   Charles Carroll, Revolution, escaped slaves
