Transcript of Living on the Plantation

What is an Overseer?
What is a Planter? (Plantation Owner)
One who owned a plantation was known as a planter. They would have slaves to do their work for them without pay. They would literally Buy PEOPLE!! They make money from other people's work. They think it's normal to get the credit for others' work.
What is a Slave?
A slave is a being that is stolen or bought to be worked WITHOUT PAY! They have to work unwillingly for their master (The one who bought him/her.)
What do slaves eat
Slaves did not have a big selection of food, and usually prepared food for themselves. They would basically eat whatever they got.
What are Cash Crops?
A cash crop is a crop that is grown with the sole purpose of making a profit when fully grown. They have no use by the owner whatsoever besides making money. The money could have been used to buy slaves, more seeds for crops, investments, etc. Some examples are soy, tobacco, or cotton.
Slaves Extension
Slaves are a person that is bought or stolen to be worked unwillingly without pay. They had no way of escaping without paying "The Price"...
Punishments/ "The Price"
The ordinary punishments of slaves, for the common crimes of neglect, absence from work, eating the sugar cane, theft, are cart whipping, beating with a stick, sometimes to the breaking of bones, the chain, an iron crook about the neck... a ring about the ankle, and confinement in the dungeon. There have been instances of slitting of ears, breaking of limbs, so as to make amputation necessary, popping out of eyes, and castration... It is true, that the unfeeling punishments shortens the life of many slaves.
