Scanned page of classified advertisements in the January 7, 1837 issue of the Carolina Watchman. The row on the furthest left are advertisements for sale or rent of a house, room on boats shipping goods from N. York to Fayetteville, and enslaved Black people.

The next row harks a $50 award for a capture of a runaway enslaved Black men, Toney and John, an announcement for the court of pleas and quarter session, sale of enslaved Black children and women, $20 award for a runnaway enslaved Black man named Tim, and a sale of a young horse.

The third column advertises enrollment to female boarding school, a sale of an enslaved Black man, Nathan, and applications for gaining navigation rights of the Yadkin River.

The farthest right column reaches out for those interested in an apprenticeship at the Coach and Ornamental Painting, capture of a runaway enslaved Black man named Peter, and a stone cutting job.

Public Domain

Public Domain is a copyright term that is often used when talking about copyright for creative works. Under U.S. copyright law, individual items that are in the public domain are items that are no longer protected by copyright law. This means that you do not need to request permission to re-use, re-publish or even change a copy of the item. Items enter the public domain under U.S. copyright law for a number of reasons: the original copyright may have expired; the item was created by the U.S. Federal Government or other governmental entity that views the things it creates as in the public domain; the work was never protected by copyright for some other reason related to how it was produced (for example, it was a speech that wasn't written down or recorded); or the work doesn't have enough originality to make it eligible for copyright protection.
