Transcript of Slaves
Slaves got very little sleep because of how long they had to work. They had very uncomfortable, wooden beds. Three or four at the most slept on one bed. Slaves had very small houses and nearly seven to ten lived in each house.
Slaves and how they were treated
Slaves were treated very badly. When they did something wrong they were whipped, hanged, or even killed. They had to work for hours a day. When they were not working their hands usually were chained together.

A very well known slave, Harriet Tubman became a runaway slave and would sneak into peoples houses as she was trying to get to the North. She eventually would make trips to get other slaves and bring the to the North where they would be free. As her and other slaves were going to the North if some one wanted to turn back she would pull a gun and say "Be free or die a slave". She made about 19 trips to Maryland and freed almost 300 slaves. It is said that she has never failed to deliver a "passenger".
In the 19th century the northern states were against slavery. They did not want it spreading in the North. Due to the North not wanting slavery the American Civil War started. Eventually all Northern states/colonies abolished slavery.
