How did the seach for a viable labor force affect the developement of the southern colonies? What was the role of African American slavery in the early colonial settements? Why were two southern colonies initially resistant to slavery?
How would you like us to help you with this assignment?
I think i need someone to explain everything to me. I read the chapter out of the text book, but it doesn't I don't understand.
1. Land owners in the Southern colonies couldn't find enough people to work on their farms. What did they do to get these workers?
2. Which colonies used African-American slaves to work for them? Did these colonies have a different economy than those that didn't use slaves? How was it different?
3. Why did two Southern colonies not want slaves?
I understand number one and half of two, but number three is the one that confuses me.
I think Georgia was one southern colony that was resistant to slavery at first because they bordered Spanish Florida and they thought that the Spanish would start a slave revolt against them. As far as I know there was only one state that was resistant to slavery however the early methodists opposed slavery on moral grounds.
