The South had fertile soil, a warm climate, and a substantial length of growing season. All perfect for growing cotton!!
Another day of the same thing...
The next stop is the church where everyone is praising and dancing.
Slaves were allowed to go to church. Slavery was "supported" by the bible. They often sang hymns and danced at church services. They also played instruments.
Illiteracy was well spread but some slaves expressed through slavery through writing. Slaves didn't get "luxuries" such as dessets. Spices were also available with food but meals often lacked variety.
Welcome to the household
This is the harbor
The "cash crops" of the South were cotton and tobacco. The cotton gin made a lot of money. Southerners relied on trade for more resources but farming was profitable. Slave labor also cut costs.
This smells weird
Next stop is the town
In the South, there were fewer people due to fewer taxes. There were also fewer schools for the same reason. The slave trade continued on in the South. They also had sparse communication and transportation.
Oh hey, you again!!
The last stop of today, the plantation.
Social classes weren't as equal in the south as the North. The highest class was the Planters, then it went to small farmers, poor farmers, and last, slaves.
