23. "Battle cry of freedom" is searchable in google books, and here's what it says:

 

"while the slave population of the united states doubled by natural reproduction every 26 years, slaves in other new world societies experienced a net natural decrease." (p. 37)

http://books.google.com/books?id=a3nX48n4oeIC&q=natural+increase+slaves#v=snippet&q=population%20slaves%20decreased&f=false

so far as i can tell, there's nothing in that book about slave populations in the US declining or failing to increase. The opposite, in fact.
