Evidence of Historic Slave Jail Revealed in Virginia
The discoveries announced Wednesday include the remains of a brick foundation at what was once known as Lumpkin's Slave Jail. A cobblestone courtyard and the remnants of a kitchen were also found.
Lumpkin's Jail was named after Robert Lumpkin, who was known as a"bully trader" for his rough handling of enslaved men, women and children.
