   Solomon is sold to Tibeats by Ford. Ford sells Solomon to Epps to protect him from Tibeats.
   Solomon is tied up and left in the sun after fighting with Tibeats but he can breath. Tibeats hangs Solomon and he is standing on his toes to be able to breath.
   Tibeats can't kill Solomon because Ford still holds the mortgage on him. Ford chases Tibeats away and cuts Solomon down before he is killed.
   During his transport to the south, Solomon and the other slaves planned to revolt. They all decide to keep their heads down and endure.
   Solomon has a very complex relationship with the Epps. They are only shown to be brutal to him and the other slaves.
