I am going to move to the new land
this is hard!
you are going to work for me for 7 years.
People decided to move to America because they wanted a new chance. Others had been there before and were offering free land.
When they got there they started to farm tobacco. It was hard to do and they needed help. They started with indentured servants.
you will work for me for the rest of your life!
Indentured servants worked for a certain amount of time before they were set free. It was hard work for the indentured servants!
I guess me and my family are am stuck hereforever
But the owners of the plantations decided they needed more people to do the work. They started shipping slaves from Africa to come and work for them.
But the slaves from africa had to work for their whole lives with no pay. So did their children. It was very hard and sad.
Slavery continued for a long time just so greedy people did not have to do work. And it all started when people decided to grow tobacco in America.
