The Schooner ""Vandolero"" or ""Estrella"" was captured at sea by
British cruisers and adjudicated at a court established at Sierra Leone under
international anti-slave trade treaties. The image is of a picture of the first page of
the court’s register of ""Liberated Africans"" taken from the ""Vandolero"". The register was
kept as a formal record of emancipation that helped protect the individual from subsequent
re-enslavement. The image is reproduced courtesy of the British National Archives.
