Chapter Summary

This appendix talks about the persecutors who belonged to a nation Dahomey and warred against, Attahpam. Out of fourteen brought upon the platform, the unworthy instruments of Providence, succeeded in saving the lives of three. Six or seven executioners were armed with large knives and grinning horribly. The Monarch made a speech to the soldiers, telling them that these were the prisoners from Attahpam, he called their names. The unfortunate being nearest the King, stripped of his clothes, was now placed on end on the parapet, the King giving the upper part of the boat an impetus, a descent of twelve feet stunned the victim, and before animation could return, the head was off; the body, beaten by the mob, was dragged by the heels to a pit at a little distance.

Keywords: Attahpam; Dahomey
