Thanks to STS doctoral student, Mary Richie Mcguire, today I learned that Robert Lewis Dabney may have been an influence in the demise of anti-slavery sentiments in Hampden-Sydney College, and that David Minge, M.D., wanted to enter the Navy, but was regarded as mediocre. He had freed several enslaved Blacks in Charles City, given them silver dollars and had paid for their trip to Hayti in 1825. How much his anti-slavery sentiment may have played in his bad reputation?
