When they got to America some had already died because of the conditions. Then they wen't to the action block to be sold to the highest bidder. Tomas's family wen't to a wheat farm in Virginia. Slavery was very high there.
Then they made there way to there new home in Virginia. The houses were not good at all. They were very tight an. Some didn't even have beds in them. If they did it was only one for the hole family. They were not happy. They just wanted to be free.
We have to be very quiet.
They had to work in the harshest conditions. Sometimes the children wouldn't see their parents all day. When They worked in the fields there where men who made sure the slaves were doing their work. If they didn't they would get whipped.
A little while later, Tomas and Emily's Mother died and there Father was sold to another farm. They were very sad.
A week later they dicided to run away and be apart of the underground railrode.
