Men would go into houses and often take the man or boy in the house.
PLEASE PLEASE don't take my husband I love him
Mommy Daddy what's going on why is daddy leaving
HURRY up lets go NOW
on the ship across the Atlantic Ocean.
You took us from our families, put us in here it stinks, and give us crap tasting food
Shut up down there and stop complaining.
I'm going to get so much money today
Men were sold and ashamed
one dollar one dollar any takers
the people were brought from their home to a new place and they had to pay at the end of the trip and if they were unable to pay for their trip someone would pay but the person would have to work to pay off the other person it time was usually 3-7 years
Quit your whining
The men or women worked for the person that paid for the trip they worked for 3-7 years to pay the person back
After the indentured servant served his or her 3-7 years they were free they got a pair of clothes then the men got horses and women got cows
