Famous quotes containing the word planters:

    The first day that we landed upon that fatal shore
    The planters they came round us full twenty score or more,
    They rank’d us up like horses, and sold us out of hand
    Then yok’d us unto ploughs, my boys, to plow Van
    Dieman’s Land.
    —Unknown. Van Dieman’s Land (l. 9–12)
