Breen and Stephen Innes reconstruct a community in which ownership of property was as significant as skin color in structuring social relations

Ever since its publication twenty-five years ago, "Myne Owne Ground" has challenged readers to rethink much of what is taken for granted about American race relations.During the earliest decades of Virginia history, some men and women who arrived in the New World as slaves achieved freedom and formed a stable community on the Eastern shore. Holding their own with white neighbors for much of the 17th century, these free blacks purchased freedom for family members, amassed property, established plantations, and acquired laborers. T.H. Breen and Stephen Innes reconstruct a community in which ownership of property was as significant as skin color in structuring social relations. Why this model of social interaction in race relations did not survive makes this a critical and urgent work of history.In a new foreword, Breen and Innes reflect on the origins of this book, setting it into the context of Atlantic and particularly African history.
Reviews about Myne Owne Ground: Race and Freedom on Virginia's Eastern Shore, 1640-1676 (7):
Gogul
This was a fascinating investigation into the lives of black freed-men on a specific peninsula along the coast of Virginia before Bacon's Rebellion. The discussion includes information on indentured servitude as well.

I found the authors refreshingly objective, providing candid opinion.

Something that impressed me was that I didn't understand the extent to which indentured servitude was like temporary slavery. At one point, white runaway servants were captured and through court order were whipped and branded in the face with an R. They were considered property.

Its always assumed that Africans were treated poorly when they arrived in America. This book provides evidence to the contrary. The premise of the book is that there was a time in which Americans of African heritage were not only NOT treated as animals, but were equals in society, able to hold land, animals and even slaves! The authors focus on one area of the Virginia colony and the court records that can be found for that area.

The book is a quick and easy read and does not presuppose any kind of advanced knowledge of American History. The narratives contained in the story will open your eyes as to the beginnings of the American spirit and renew your faith in the American way.

Had to read for history class, but there were many interesting stories. This product came on time, in good condition. It helped with school and I didn't expect anything more. I do not recommend reading for entertainment purposes, but I am not a huge book reader. =]
Wat!?
A very interesting slice of history regarding slavery and the fact that some Africans were actually free and land owners in the 1700s in VA. Of course this changed once the slave trade moved into full swing. I thought it was very interesting.

This is a great quick great read on little know American history. Well used in adding depth to any Virginia history class or any other covering early European colonies in North America.

Good read. I always love discovering an alternative perspective.

Very interesting book and had a unique point of view. Arrived on time and in the condition that was stated.
this was one of the books required for my african american experience history class last term. this reading was difficult for me due to the content, but I was able to manage. I frequently had to take breaks when reading it, or else my emotions would start to go haywire and I'd want to go back in time and give them (whites) a good ass-whooping for being utter bastards...
