Long Description:
Baltimore Slave Trade:

Although the United States banned the transatlantic slave trade in 1808, a domestic trade from the upper south to the emerging cotton-growing regions of the deep south thrived until the 1860s. Baltimore-based dealers supplied the trade operating lave pens at the Inner Harbor, on Fell's Point, and across the city, including near this location. Between 1808 and the abolition of slavery in Maryland in 1864, an estimated thirty thousand people were "sold south" from Baltimore.
