  1. I think that the people are talking about bringing slaves to the country since the picture is dated 1655 I think it is before people realized slavery is bad and abusive so that’s why they’re talking about it. I think we will be learning about slave trades and fights against slavery.

  2. I think in this picture there trying to sell a slave and thats the slave standing on the table the people that are gathered around are the people that want the slave
    The evidence that supports my idea is all the people from town come out to try and set and offer for the slave
    I think that our lesson today is about the slaves and what they do for the constitution.
