In partnership with The Louisa Arts Center, The Louisa County Historical Center presents professor Jack Trammell’s discussion of Richmond’s 15th Street, known as the South’s Wall Street in antebellum times, which, like its New York counterpart, was a center of commerce. But the business done here was unspeakable and the scene heart wrenching. With over sixty-nine slave dealers and auction houses, the Wall Street area saw tens of millions of dollars and countless human lives change hands, fueling the southern economy. Dr. Trammell’s presentation will bring highlights of his book by the same name in which he traces the history of the city’s slave trade, from the origins of African slavery in Virginia to its destruction at the end of the Civil War. Unique to this presentation will be documented accounts of the sales of slaves at Louisa Court House, sales advertised in the Richmond papers to entice traders to purchase slaves here for resale on the Richmond market.
