The Idea

After the 13, 14 & 15 amendments were created, a lot of farmers had a lot of land but nobody to farm on it. So a group of people tried to come up with a way to do it.They came up with sharecropping.

What it was

It was when a former slave would go to a farm and try to get the job. They would sign a contract saying that you will work on my farm and I will give you money.What I say goes.
