colonies COMICO!

Storyboard Text

  • After several weeks of traveling, I finally arrived at my cousin's plantation!
  • My cousin talked proudly about each and every one of his slaves, his "belongings" helping him get rich by planting and harvesting the cash crops (tobacco)
  • As we rode by, his vast fields of crops, I noticed there were thousands of slaves in the distance
  • Although, we had slaves in the Middle Colonies aswell, he had about 4 times the amount that worked on our farms.
  • To get to his house, we went by a slave establishment. Since there were so many slaves on his land, I wondered how he was able to house them all. I asked him if he would give me a tour and he agreed.
  • As I entered the small room, a horrible stench filled my nose. On the beds, I saw indentured servants and slaves alike laying on the beds trying to catch some sleep. I was horrified. The slave housing at our farm wasn't as bad as how it was here.
  • I realized that slavery was a very important part of the Southern colonies' plantations when I saw even more slaves in front of his house.
