#1203: comparative brutality : Gill replies

From: mark gill <markgill@midwest.net>

re slavery....it is interesting that until the beginning of the 19th century
in the "western world", the morality of slavery was not really an
issue.....as i recall, this questioning began in England and spread to other

i believe a law was passed around l806 in the young US calling slavery
illegal, but since the central govt had little power, there was no way to
enforce it....i may have the date off somewhat....and, i am sure someone can
correct me.....
