Slavey was a system which treated people as preoperty to be bought and sold, and are forced to work.Slaves can be held against their will from the time of their capture, purchase or birth, and deprived of the right to leave, to refuse to work, or to demand compensation. Historically, slavery was institutionally recognized by most societies; in more recent times, slavery has been outlawed in all countries. Men, Women and even children were sold and then some children were taken away from their parents. Lincoln became the president during slavery he was okay with slavery but he didn't want it to expand. After a little while he got rid of slavery. People in the north were kinda ok with it but some slave owners were furious because they used slaves to do the work for them && they would end up loosing money.

Sharecopping was part of Slavery too

Freed slaves were equally distressed, as they did not own land or have jobs to sustain them. Many slaves were uneducated and lacked skills. Often they returned to the plantations to work for pay. However, the plantation owners lacked the money to pay salaries.

A solution to both problems was the concept of sharecropping. With sharecropping, freed slaves would pay the plantation owner rent on a portion of property by giving the owner a share of the crops grown on that land.

The plantation owners provided "Housing", materials and machinery neede for farming the land.
