Default Macedonians noted on a voyage to the Holy Land, 1483!

Title page.

Table of content.

Page 313.

Page 317.

Source: "First-Class Passenger" by August Mencken, 1938, page 313 and 317.

Macedonians are noted as galley slaves on the ship that is en route to the Holy Land in 1483.

Enjoy

These galleyslaves are for the most part the bought slaves of the captain, or else they are men of low station, or prisoners, or men who have run away, or been driven out of their own countries, or exiles, or such as are so unhappy that they cannot live or gain a livelihood ashore. Whenever there is any fear of their making their escape, they are secured to their benches by chains. As a rule they are Macedonians, and men from Albania, Achaia, Illyria and Sclavonia; and sometimes there are among them Turks and Saracens, who, however, conceal their religion. I never saw a German galleyslave, because no German could survive such misery. They are so accustomed to their misery that they work feebly and to no purpose unless someone stands over them and beats them like asses and curses them.

As a rule they are Macedonians. How far is the Macedonian reach! Well done Daskale.

Thank you, remember, there is so much more to find.
If everyone of us visited their local libraries and such then we could present findings like this every day for the next 10 years. This is a fact.
I have so much collected that I do not have time to go thru it all, if I had I could myself present a unique find every day for the next 10 years

An excellent addition! Sometimes a simple observation can say more than an entire treatise.
