Slavery and Indentured Servents

Stop the madness!

Slavery must stop!

Why are they not treated as equals? Their skin color is different. The slavers think they are not even human.

Ship of Horrors

Did you ever know about the Ship of Horrors? It was a slave ship that took slaves to America. All of the slaves were either loose packed ( they would lay on there backs) or tight packed ( they would lay on there sides and get close to another slaves back) under the deck.

Plantations and Protests

Slaves worked on plantations ( large farms mostly in rural areas). If they did not work they would get beaten. The slaves would starve and refuse to eat. They would burn crops ( arson). They would also work as slow as possible.
