Slaves brought much wealth to the colonist from the cash crops produced in the massive plantations; this gave further reason for the slave’s owners as well as the government officials in the Colonial United States in having their own personal reasons not to stop this imprisonment of fellow human…

    By the eighteenth century, “slavery became more entrenched” (Foner, 135) in North America. In all regions, people depended on slavery in order to make an income and put food on the table. Although New England and other middle colonies did not condone plantation slavery, the colonies still made profit from African slaves by shipping them to areas such as South Carolina, Georgia, and the Caribbean, or by using slaves for other types of labor. These colonies gave slaves (usually personal servants or artisan shop workers) some rights that no slave ever experienced in southern colonies: marriage, letting family inherit land, and testifying against whites. In South Carolina, slaves were either responsible for farming on rice and indigo plantations,…

    The institution of slavery is a black mark on the history of America. The atrocities that were allowed to occur for hundreds of year are revolting to think about. History books and classes often detail the horrors of slavery, and the effects it had on our agricultural economy. However, they do not really explain why the practice of slavery was allowed to flourish in the colonies. They just present the facts of its occurrence. They do not consider the mindset of the people who thought it was justifiable to enslave a specific race. This paper seeks to answer this question using evidence from the studies of Degler, the Handlins, and Morgan. Slavery was not brought into existence by any one singular variable. It is a combination of attitudes and circumstance. Specifically, a preexisting discrimination of darker skinned people by the British and colonists led to the foundation and inconsistent growth of slavery, while the economic factors caused for its widespread acceptance.…

    Slavery in the North American colonies was a major growing industry from 1607 to 1776. When settlers first made the journey to America and started using slaves, it was not near as popular as it soon would be. Eventually, slavery in America would become an economic powerhouse for the variable cash crops of the many plantations in America. Slavery was a strong industry and it was extremely useful in order to make profits in America. Slavery grew substantially from its origins and developed immensely in the Colonies from 1607 all the way to America’s declaration of independence in 1776.…
