Portsmouth Black Heritage TrailIn the midst of the American Revolution in 1777, James, enslaved by tavern owner John Stavers, was ordered to stop a zealous patriot from chopping down the tavern sign. Although James nearly killed the man, it was his owner, a suspected Tory, who was arrested. James had no accountability in the eyes of the law because he was a slave.
