The life of Indentured Servants

You think that all these famous people built the colonies. You are wrong. The indentured servants did. The indentured servants were forced to make the colonies. The servants didn't get much food to eat at all. Some nights,they went hungry,other nights they had to eat what they could. Pilgrims didn't have a lot of people to help them with food but the servants were willing to help them. The pilgrims were very cruel to the Indentured servants. They would punish the servants with beatings. These are the things that I am going to talk to you about.

Getting food

The amount of food

Indentured servants did not get a lot of food. Not as much as you think they did. There masters did not want to spend or waste there money to buy food for slaves. There masters did not even let them eat the food they grew. The secants would work and pay off their voyage and to get some what of comfort and food. They didn't have enough to pay for their voyage so they worked in horrible conditions to get very little food. These are the reasons why the servants did not get a lot of food.

The servants helped

Have you ever wondered why the servants helped the Pilgrims get food? Read on and you will find out why. The Pilgrims didn't have a lot of people to help find food, and the servants were willing to help them. The Indentured Servants would have to work for the Pilgrims also to pay off their voyage. They couldn't pay for their voyage so they worked for the Pilgrims instead of paying for the Voyage. This is why the servants helped the pilgrims get food.

The beatings and punishments

Have you ever wondered how cruel the masters were to the servants even thought they helped there masters get food? They were cruel,so very cruel with bad punishments and beatings. Even thought the Indentured servants worked for the master's, the master's were cruel with beatings and whippings. They were punished with fines,hanging,whipping,and many other punishments.These are some of the cruel punishments the servants got.
