Description

Topic: Slavery and the South…Slave system dealt with a variety of slave categories and work duties that tied to the economics of the South.

Question: I’ve often heard students, and even comedians, argue the following question “What you rather be a field slave or house slave?” Debate this issue using the content from the text book. Is there even a “better” scenario? Be sure to address positives and negatives from either role in the slave system. For instance, what rights or privileges may be given to a skill slave? How could this be a negative?
