1.What was your previous knowledge or historical memory of the Pilgrims and Puritans before this class?Absolutely nothing what a surprise i have no background knowledge about pilgrims and puritans,wait i have heard about pilgrims from somewhere,it’s just been so long and mind is foggy about how i knew about pilgrims and i think i am hopeless,i think i’m getting bullied with these questions,the point is i have no prior knowledge about pilgrims and puritans since my brain is the size of a pea.
2.How does Professor Wendy Warren’s work complicate our popular understanding of the Pilgrims and Puritans?According to the source about Forgotten History: How The New England Colonists Embraced The Slave Trade,Wendy Warren’s work complicate our popular understanding of the pilgrims and puritans since she does bring some valid and factual evidence to the table,that being said Wendy Warren details information that was not known and that is great but it’s a all bit much,like it starts to get complicated and convoluted such as this said by Wendy Warren “In particular, the idea that slavery could be inherited – that the child of an enslaved woman would be enslaved is an idea that you have to formulate. And American historians had said that that didn’t happen till much later in the century, really with the development of cash crops. But this was happening in 1638. That was – struck me as odd”.This quote helps my case because we don’t have all the information about the history of enslavement and Warren mentioning this is just making every history record on slavery appear suspect and the credability of it is questioned with that statement.And if that doesn’t convince the reader let also bring this up to have the reader hooked.Something else that Wendy Warren complicates our understanding of Pilgrims and Puritans this source mentions that Puritans actually owned African slaves since it was for a religious reason which is just complicated and confusing and the Puritans lived in a society stained with blood and that blood stain is a landmark in history and Pilgrims almost forgot about you,well Warren mentions an individual by the name of Samuel Sewall who was a key figure in the salem witch trials so much so that he gave zero fucks and said i was at the salem witch trials and he was anti slavery all the way and he was a rich Boston man who worked for the Massachusetts Superior Court so this information proves that not every rich Boston man had slaves but were in favor of slavery and that complicates history even more.
3.Why is it important for us to recover this “forgotten history” of indigenous slavery in colonial America? Something Warren mentions in relation to the question at hand is I mean, I think speaking as and for colonialists, it would be great if we knew more about sort of the first two centuries of European colonization of North America. And it would be great if we understood that it wasn’t a pleasant process, that it was time of warfare and brutality and a lot of fear and trauma. And it would be great if we understood that slavery was there right from the beginning, that it was embedded in the process of colonization, that in some cases it drove the process of colonization. I think that would be fantastic.”This quote is vital because history is mysterious and there is so much we don’t know such as slavery in the colonies as the source mentions and the final thing i want to mention from this source it that we still don’t have a full grasp about how history was built and how far slavery dates back and that is still unknown and that’s pretty much all and bye-bye.
