jan 1, 1527 - Bartolome de las Casas argues against enslavement of Native Americans

Description:

Ordained a Roman Catholic priest in 1512, he soon became appalled by the treatment of the Native American peoples in Spanish America. He gave up his estate, or encomienda, and his title, becoming a Dominican friar. In the early 1520's, he started writing a massive book called "A History of the Indies," which detailed the horrors enacted upon the native people in the campaigns of conquest by Spain.
