We are on the biggest tobacco plantation. The plantation is responsible in part for the bringing of slaves to America.
Development of the Plantation System
Hi, I'm a plantation owner. My cash crops sell for good money. I have the biggest tobacco plantation and work force.
We are on the ship as u can see there is a businessman and a slave. They both have very different stories. the business man is happy because he is going to become rich. On the other hand the slave is terrified on what awaits him once they reach land.
The growth of the Transatlantic Slave Trade
I am a businessperson and i am going to become filthy rich. I got into the game and I'm making thousands each trip.
I've been taken away from my family. Hope they are doing better than me. I don't know what awaits me, everything happened so fast.
Here we see how a plantation owner and slave feel about the spread of slavery. The plantations owner is happy because he makes more money than ever. The slave is sad because they will never see their family again and they work day and night.
Spread of Slavery
With the spread of slavery I have produced more tobcco than ever. The spread has really helped us plantations owners get the workload done
With the spread of slavery more families have been torn apart more than ever. i will never see my family again. now these strangers own me and make me work with very little breaks and food. I DON'T LIKE HOW SLAVERY WAS SPREAD.
