The Southern colonies differed in that slave labor was crucial to their society. In New England everyone helped with the family chores. It didn’t matter whether you were 5 or 50. As long as you could walk, there would be something for you to do. Even though the soil was weak in quality and very rocky, they still managed to farm some crops including corn, rye, peas, squash and pumpkins.
In the Caribbean, slavery was preferred; but in Russia, serfdom ruled. While Caribbean slavery and Russian serfdom are similar in regard to economics costs, they differ in the cultural details and agricultural productions. Both Caribbean slavery and Russian serfdom provided very cheap labor and economically benefited their mother government; however, the two methods came about in different ways. When the Spanish and Portuguese first began colonizing the Caribbean and South America, they stumbled upon a rich supply of native. They soon coerced the natives into working on sugar and tobacco plantations as slaves—the conditions were horrendous and life was short and brutal.
On January 10, 1864 born in Diamond, Missouri George Washington Carver was born into slavery on a small plantation owned by Moses Carver. Carver, son of Mary and Giles Carver, then went on to become a renowned botanist, chemist, and scientist. George Washington Carver played an important role in African-American History because he was one of the most well known botanist, chemist, and scientist in African-American History, he went on to speak about how all raced could live in harmony, and he created many uses for soybeans, peanuts, and sweet potatoes to help advancing farming by helping poor southern farmers get money to grow better crops. This quote from www.biography.com says that “Carver was born into slavery, but went on to become a scientist,
They have the best luck with farming and since it is in such great demand in Europe it is a multi-million pound industry. But the indentured servants from Britain are not coming as much because Britain has already sent the poor people out as indentured servants (unlike any of the other colonies). So the Portuguese see opportunity. They go to Africa and they find the Africans who are already being held as slaves in their own country. They pay the African tribal leaders for slaves.
Militaries were different, cultural outlook was different; these were things that ultimately would affect each empire in the end. Each empire was established in their respective areas for approximately four-hundred years, having around fifty million residents. While the Han Dynasty was based off of the previous dynasties it primarily resembled the Confucian values talked about in the Analects. Pax Romana on the other hand had to do with establishing a sound government that could not be broken. Basically, Rome needed to fix its flaws.
Tobacco was the major crop of the 17th century in the English colonies. After the 1680 's, the population of Indentured Servants reduced inasmuch as they were either running absent from their temporary masters to find a stab and gain their fortune or they were unable to survive the austere living requisite and died. This constitute a serious void in the drudgery market for the colonists. The African slaves were immune to miasma, an illness which was quite prevalent. The slaves also had indispensable geophonic skills as many had been living farmers in
Being a reasonably labour intensive process, farmers chose to employ a method involving slaves working in small groups, while mostly always being supervised by a white overseer. This made for much more efficient work method, allowing overseer’s to supervise and when required, discipline groups of slaves concurrently. Although this proved to be efficient it was a difficult and unjustifiable system. During the pinnacle of the harvesting season, slaves were forced to work from sunrise to sunset, in rare cases even being asked to work through the night of a full moon. Beating and whippings being offered to any workers who refused to work and showed signs of rebellion, with some even being mutilated or killed.
This was one of the soul causes of the Dust Bowl. With such advances, erosion, dust, and heat all still played a fairly big role to the leading cause of the dust bowl. Not only dealing with the great depression, farmers back in the 1930’s had to deal with their own problems, such as growing enough crops to get paid. This was difficult knowing the phenomenon with the dust bowl. Towns people would have money, bathrooms, and a better life while farmers on the outside had to rely on their own sources to live off of.
Many new farmers came to the plains in hopes to escape the depression. They used very poor farming techniques which disrupted the environment. With the especially dry climate, and thousands of new farmers using poor techniques, this created the disaster known as the Dust Bowl. Many people debate about how the dust bowl happened. Some say it was the weather, but the poor cultivation of the farmers in the early 1930s was the real cause of that tragic
