Teaching Slave Life and Slave Codes

Slave Life and Slave Codes

Slave life varied greatly depending on many factors.\nLife on the fields meant working sunup to sundown six days a week and having food sometimes not suitable for an animal to eat. Plantation slaves lived in small shacks with a dirt floor and little or no furniture. Life on large plantations with a cruel overseer was oftentimes the worst. However, work for a small farm owner who was not doing well could mean not being fed.
