Hello! My name is John Applegate, and today I will show you around the farm and some effects of the Civil War!
So, I am a sharecropper, and we work in the farming industry! But, it is quite different from regular farming. This is a way for us in poverty to make a living!
But, the catch is that we usually stay in poverty. We never make enough money to receive our own pay. Hopefully this doesn't happen for me.
You might think that this is slavery, but this was actually legal and was not slavery, as we make a profit and slaves don't.
My landowner provides me with tools, housing, land, and money for food and supplies. But at harvest, I am expected to pay back my tenant or landowner with profit made off the crops.
Hopefully this years harvest is successful! See you later, bye!
