I never said there weren’t any

I said where most where

Middle north colonies


Georgia and New Hampshire and Massachusetts least

Since unlike south haters here I’m about empiricism regardless how it fits my world view

Why did the South have less

A) frontiersman in their western territory

B) many southern colonist were birthright denier by English class system

C) many from parts of Britain that had been rebellious

D) the English were promising to free slaves and abolition was further along there...which scared northern slave owners too remember this is before the Cotton Gin

Some of my ancestors on my Mom’s side were given the opportunity to be “Transported” to the colonies or be hung. In other words they were slaves. White slaves being cheap, about 5 pounds compared to Black slaves 80 to 200 pounds, were treat far worse. Many including a few of my ancestors escaped to the interior highlands and mixed in with the Indians. Later they concentrated around Pickens and Easley S.C. My GreatGreat Grand Dad fought for the South and was wounded and captured at Gettysburg, paroled and captured again when Johnston surrendered to Sherman.
