Where are plantations?
Some slaves owners (planters) did not want to know what their slaves were doing after sun set.
Some planters said that "their slaves can't live without them and they can't live with out them."
Many planters made excuses to justify keeping slaves.
Slaves worked from dawn til dusk.
Not unusual for more than one cash crop to be grown on a plantation.
