SLAVE SALE BROADSIDE “SLAVE ANN ELIZA AND HER CHILD FLORENCE” – TO BE AUCTIONED OFF ON FEB. 14, 1853 AT THE COURTHOUSE IN LOUISVILLE, KY. TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER
AMAZINGLY THE SLAVE’S NAME IS ELIZA, JUST LIKE IN THE STORY UNCLE TOM’S CABIN! She too had a small child. Slave sale broadsides are extremely rare and today usually only see in museum collections. The broadside measures 11 ½ inches x 9 ½ inches and has been professionally strengthened, cleaned and deacidified… what a great looking document. With the similarity to the story of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, this is our favorite slave sale broadside… probably a once in a lifetime opportunity for your collection or museum.
