Argument of John Quincy Adams, Before the Supreme Court of the U.S., in the Case of the U.S. vs. Cinque, & Others, Africans. John Quincy Adams.
New York: Negro Universities Press, 1969. Reprint Edition. Hardcover. 135 pages. Discoloration inside hinges and inside margin, slight wear to spine edges. In February of 1839, Portuguese slave hunters abducted a group of Africans from Sierra Leone and shipped them to Cuba, a center for the slave trade. This abduction violated all of the treaties then in existence. Fifty-three Africans were purchased by schooner Amistad for shipment to a Caribbean plantation. The Africans seized the ship, killed the captain and the cook, and ordered the planters to sail to Africa. On August 24, 1839, the Amistad was seized off Long Island by the U.S. brig Washington. The planters were freed and the Africans were imprisoned in New Haven, CT, on charges of murder. The murder charges were dismissed but Africans continued to be held in confinement as the case turned to salvage claims and property rights. President Van Buren was in favor of extraditing the Africans to Cuba. However, abolitionists in the North opposed extradition and raised money to defend the Africans. Claims to the Africans by the planters, the government of Spain, and the captain of the brig led the case to trial in the Federal District Court in Connecticut. The court ruled that the claims to the Africans as property were not legitimate because they were illegally held as slaves. The case went to the Supreme Court in January 1841, and former President John Quincy Adams argued the defendants' case. Adams defended the right of the accused to fight to regain their freedom. The Supreme Court decided in favor of the Africans, and 35 surviving were returned to their homeland.
