Transcript of TOBACCO
In 1775 lots of people lived in colonies. Most of those people were farmers. They lived on 200 acre fields. In that space there would be growing tobacco. Tobacco was used to earn money. So tobacco was a cash crop.
Long ago, Great Britain's colonies operated a eco system called mercantilism. So colonies send goods, such as tobacco, to each other. In return they got cloth and ect. So tobacco was very important to Great Britain because they loved cloth for clothes and other reasons.
Tobacco is a hard crop to grow, because it is labor intensive. That means it requires many people/slaves to work hard on it.
Tobacco gets inspected. After it's inspected you get a note. The note was used for money.
Tobacco is a crop that is grown by a farmer for sale.
WHAT IS TOBACCO?
Tobacco is hung to dry. Once it is dried it goes in a hogshead.
