People in South Carolina, lived in a rural area with short summers and long winters. The people worked in town.
During the day, the dad/husband, went out into town to make money and trade. The mom stayed home and took care of the children, made clothes, and cleaned. And the children did chores.
When people went out to trade, they usually go to Charleston (a key trading center).
Children were usually treated like miniature adults. They did lots of chores around the house. Schools started before the 1700s came along.
And I went to school.
I helped mom around the house.
In the South, they grew tabacco, rice, and later they grew cotton. The enslaved had to tend, pick, and prepare these crops. There were usually more african than European slaves. They usually bought hundreds at a time. The slaves also used there personal knowledge for work.
