This chapter describes the white settlement of the Blue Ridge Foothills of upper South Carolina and the documentation of slavery and slave life in the region prior to 1865. The chapter draws upon local (published) histories and some (oral) family histories to document the lives of several enslaved individuals as well. In these family stories are examples of resistance to enslavement and their agency in maintaining their lives.
