New York Burning describes the dramatic and horrific events that were occurring in New York during the eighteenth century. The author, Jill Lepore, tells the events of the slave’s conspiracy to burn every white man and their town in chronological order. Jill Lepore pursues the theme that the slaves involved in the conspiracy trials were treated unfairly. Many of their rights were limited in various ways. I believe that Jill Lepore wrote this book to inform the readers about how slaves in New York were being treated in the eighteenth century.
In the book, the author elaborates on how the slaves were being treated during this time period.
