  • Act X

    Act X
    African Americans are not allowed to own guns. This stopped Africans from being able to hunt. Not only that but the Africans could not protect themselves. This is very important because the free Africans could not help protect the town if Indians attack. Earlier that year Anthony had been attacked by Indians on his Masters land. Even though there were attacks, the white men just wanted to stop the rebellions. Even though the rebellions did stop, the gun loss put them at a disadvantage.

    After Anthony has no rights to guns he gets land. At the time he had no land and had jist become free. He now has to protect his own property and has no weapons. Anthony won the land in court after the death of a Captian. Even though he has to protect his land things are looking up.
  • Act IV

    Act IV
    African Americans could buy slaves at this time. In 1670 a new law was passed regarding the Africans. The law stated that Africans could not buy Christian slaves. Not only that but they could only buy other un-free Africans or Indians that had been captured and were able to be bought. This made them enslave their own kind. Anthony did have slaves before this but most were white.

    Chap. IV
    At this point there were people holding office both African and white. That year there was a law passed that stated that Africans could hold office under certain conditions. If the person had committed a crime could not hold office. This part was for all people. Africans could not hold office unless they pay a fine for staying in office. This was really discriminating because whites did not have to pay money. This quickly caused Africans to have to leave office.
  • Chap. XXII

    Chap. XXII
    At this time Africans were free. When this law was passed it was the worst. It stated that all Africans and Indians were no longer free. All property of Africans were torn from them and then sold at the new owners will. If a slave was not bought immediately he or she was kept as property. This happened when Anthony's children were alive and they lived through it. This was discriminating and was thought to be good for the people and the farms.
