Slave Tag Charleston 1852 # 17

This brass slave tag was worn by a coachman in Charleston, South Carolina in 1852. It is rectangular in shape and measures 1.5 x 2 inches. The tag is engraved with the number 17 and the word "Coachman."

Slave tags were used to identify slaves who were working in the city. They were also used to control the movement of slaves. Slaves who were hired out to work for other people were required to wear their tags at all times.

This slave tag is a reminder of the harsh realities of slavery. It is a reminder that slaves were treated as property and not as human beings. It is also a reminder of the importance of fighting for freedom and equality
