Molasses to Rum

by Brian ORoark

The musical 1776 tells of the battle in the Continental Congress over signing the Declaration of Independence.  The song Molasses to Rum addresses what the south viewed as the hypocrisy of the north regarding the slave trade.  It is fairly safe to say that this is the only song ever written about the triangle trade.
