I am Peter Salem, and I’m from Framingham Massachusetts and was born in 1750 . I was born a slave along with my friend Barzillai Lew, and we have black skin so only our families respects us. I never liked my child years because all I did was work. I was a soldier though for Massachusetts during the revolutionary war even though blacks were hated back then and that is not good at all.
I also fought in Concorde for the battle of Lexington and Concorde and in the battle of Bunker hill. I was never a leader or a very important person in the war, I was just a normal soldier. After all of the battle I went back to slavery a little bit more and after they released me I lived a peaceful life with not much harm.
Sincerely, Peter Salem
