History of Slave Tags:

Slave tags were used in the United States to identify enslaved people. They were typically made of metal and were engraved with the slave's name, owner's name, and sometimes the slave's plantation or county. Slave tags were often worn around the neck or wrist, and they were used to prevent slaves from running away.

The use of slave tags began in the early 17th century, and they were still being used in some parts of the United States until the end of the Civil War. Slave tags were a symbol of the institution of slavery, and they are a reminder of the cruelty and injustice of that time.

This tag is a valuable piece of history, and it is a reminder of the dark days of slavery in the United States. It is a piece that should be preserved and remembered, so that we can learn from the past and build a better future.
