Both of these white man, Teach us that they would treat there slaves with cure punishment and that White men could do anything to there slaves.  And many slaves would suffer with pain.

Why Fredrick spend a whole chapter on both Mr. Gore and colonel Lloyd was because he viewed what happened to slaves and because he wanted us to know how white men treated there slaves
