Was free slaves legal?
A 1723 law stated that slaves may not "be set free upon any pretence whatsoever, except for some meritorious services to be adjudged and allowed by the governor and council." In some cases, a master who was drafted into the army would send a slave instead, with a promise of freedom if he survived the war.
