Unfortunately for many blacks who became slaves, they were traded as merchandise for goods. Even though Chattel Slavery was a system that was first initiated in Europe, it later did become legal in the United States. The legalization of Chattel slavery in the United States happened due to the fact that a trader who brought slaves into America. He kept bringing slaves into America as servants to him and other, this marking the beginning of legal Chattel slavery in the United States. It came to the point that black slaves were part of the Civil War.
It was cheaper laborers working as slaves (worth nothing or very little) they were brought in to harvest the crops and tobacco. The colonists believed that buying African slaves was the most efficient way to acquire a labor force. The African Americans were taught to crop and make tobacco for their American masters. The American Masters brought African Americans because there weren’t much people working in the fields like those also because African Americans were immune to Malaria; a disease that can kill you and that comes from farms and agricultural areas. Many people died because of slavery, one because of the amount of crucial abuse they got from the Americans, and two because they couldn’t feed themselves properly, they were treated like stray dogs working for food.
True outcasts were the white southerners who occupied the infertile lands of the pine barrens, the red hills, and the swamps. At the time, they were known as “crackers,” “sand hillers,” or “poor white trash.” Many did not own their own land and instead supported themselves by foraging or hunting. Others worked at times as common laborers for their neighbors. Part of the reason these people were not against slavery was because there were so deadened by poverty that they had little strength to protest. The main reason why many of the non-slave owning whites supported slavery was because of their perception of race.
Mildred D. Taylor took these events into consideration when writing her novel, and in doing so, gave an accurate representation of how life was for colored people in the 1930s. Despite gaining their freedom, the vast majority of African Americans became farmers as they were well experienced in the trade. However, most of them had to become a sharecropper, or a farmer who works someone else’s land for a share of the profit. Buying land was even more of a challenge for colored people, as many whites refused to sell it to them. Being a sharecropper meant that not only did one have a job, but they were also provided with a place to live on their small share of land.
Douglass had seen the overseer tie up the hands of men and women and lashed them for hours until their backs were covered in nothing but blood.

Thesis Statement: In South Carolina, it was common for masters to own slaves, abuse them, give them harsh living conditions, and strict rules to follow.

On the bottom were the slaves. Slaves worked all day long, and usually only had one meal per day. If a slave had a rich master, they were more likely to have a comfortable home. Slaves had many different jobs, and some jobs were better than others. They had no privileges, were generally treated poorly, and were beaten if they did something
However they also realised that sugar was an incredibly difficult crop to grow because of the high temperatures, long hours and physical exertion needed which, unsurprisingly, lead to many Europeans not wanting to do the job – they required another solution. They initially enslaved the native population (Native Americans) but it became clear that this was not a permanent solution – the natives did not have the skills to farm and also began to contract diseases that the Europeans had brought with them such as measles and smallpox, so many Native Americans were literally worked to death. The next source of labour came from indentured servants who were men and women working for a specified amount of time, these were often criminals working for their freedom. However this also proved to be only a temporary solution due to the nature of the servants leaving after they had done their time. This left only one option in the minds of the Europeans; African slaves.
They did not make a fortune, but it was enough to get them by. Farmers were basically their own bosses, so they worked on their own time. Therefore, their schedules were very flexible. However, when industrialization occurred, most of the people who were once farmers moved to urban areas and became factory workers. Their work conditions were absolutely horrendous and completely unhygienic.
