1827 · Slavery Becomes Illegal in New York State

Age 22

During the years 1799 to 1827, New York went through a period of gradual emancipation. A Gradual Emancipation Law was passed in 1799 which freed slave children born after July 4, 1799. However, they were indentured until 25 years old for women and 28 years old for men. A law passed 1817 which freed slaves born before 1799, yet delayed their emancipation for ten years. All remaining slaves were freed in New York State on July 4, 1827.

Name Meaning

English: from the Middle English personal name Godewyn, Old English Gōdwine, composed of the elements gōd ‘good’ + wine ‘friend’.
