9. Yeah, and when you discuss slavery in the United States
You discuss slavery in the United States during its actual existence. Otherwise you discuss either slavery in the colonies or slavery's transition from colonial America to the United States. These are NOT monolithic and uniform topics... EG what about Rhode Island? what about territories that never had slavery?
