I love slavery! These men are doing all this work for me and I dont even have to pay them
Spread of Slavery
Slavery is terrible. Im doing all this work for this man with no pay and no rights!
Farmers in the south made huge farms called plantations and grew lots of cash crops. There wasn't enough servants to work on these farms, but the farmers wanted more labor so that they could grow their Cash Crops. The cash crops were mainly tobacco.
In exchange for rum and weapons slaves would be sent to America. These men were packed onto ships and treated very harshly. Many of the captured men did not make it the colonies because of the terrible conditions
Plantations kept on growing and more and more slaves were brought to America. The plantation owners weren't nice to the slaves and treated them poorly.
