The Brig ""Amélia"" 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 ""Amélia"". The register was kept as a formal record of emancipation that
helped protect the individual from subsequent re-enslavement. The image is reproduced
