Storyboard Text

  • How did we get in this big house mom?
  • The north got money from buying and selling goods. They sold lots of textiles, iron, and ships.
  • We got a ton of money from selling textiles, iron and ships.
  • Hello, I am an immigrant from New England. I came here in search of a job.
  • Many people from the New England area came to the cities in search of jobs.
  • Well you are in luck because one of our guys just quit, so you can have it.
  • Aren't you guys glad we are not in slavery.
  • Unlike the South, the North did not use slaves. They used mining, lumber, textiles, and shipping
  • We are still making money too.
  • Yes, we do not have to be used like the people in the south. I feel bad for them.
  • Ya, instead of using slaves we are using mining, lumber, textiles, and shipping
  • Hello, this is my plantation. Here we plant cotton, tobacco, rice, sugar cane, and indigo.
  • The cotton made up 2/3 of the total value of America. Planters were the upper class of the south. On the plantations, the cotton, tobacco, and other crops were the cash crops of the south.
  • Wow, I see you have made quite a profit from this plantation.
  • The slaves were the people planting and making all the cotton. The plantation owners needed money. If the slaves weren't following directions the slave codes made the owners have all the power over the slaves.
  • What have you done today?
  • I have been planting and making all this cotton all day sir.
  • I am so glad I have this skill of being a craftsman. Without this I would be a slave.
  • Free blacks in the South kept their land or acquired skills that allowed them to earn and own property as artisans and craftsmen.
